The multilayered fruitiness of fig-infused balsamic (look for it with other vinegars at the market) is a nice balance for the sweet and salty prosciutto-wrapped asparagus spears.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat grill to medium-high.

  • Cut prosciutto slices in half crosswise and then lengthwise to create 16 strips. Wrap the midsection of each asparagus spear with a strip of prosciutto. Brush the asparagus tips with oil.

  • Grill the asparagus, perpendicular to the grates so they don't fall through, turning occasionally, until the prosciutto and asparagus tips are crispy, 8 to 10 minutes. Drizzle with vinegar and serve with Parmesan and lemons, if desired.
