This is our daughter, Angieâ€™s favorite asparagus recipe. It is very easy, but also very impressive. Angie & her family live in Fort McMurray. Every spring we send her batches of asparagus. The best way we have found to get fresh asparagus to her is through a very kind man who works in Fort McMurray that visits our booth at The Old Strathcona Farmerâ€™s Market in Edmonton on Saturdays. We send several bundles with him and he delivers fresh asparagus to her. How lucky is that?
- 24 Edgar Farms asparagus spears
- 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
- Â¼ tsp. freshly ground pepper
- 12 thin slices prosciutto
- 12 slices provolone or havarti cheese
Preheat BBQ or grill to high & lightly oil. Toss asparagus with olive oil. Wrap 2 asparagus spears with a piece of cheese, then a piece of prosciutto, allowing ends of asparagus to be exposed. Place on grill, close lid and cook, turning often until asparagus turns bright green and is tender-crisp.
Alternatively, place on cookie sheet and bake uncovered at 450F for 6 to 9 min. rolling around a few times.
