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.

  • 4 thin slices prosciutto
  • 16 asparagus spears (about 1 pound), woody ends trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fig balsamic vinegar
  • Shaved Parmesan cheese & grilled lemons for garnish


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
