12 asparagus spears
6 prosciutto slices/strips
A little ghee for frying
Cut 2 cm off the end of washed asparagus spears.
Cut prosciutto strips into two halves, going lengthways, so you end up with 12 strips.
Place a prosciutto strip on a chopping board at a 45 degree angle. Place one of the asparagus spears on top of the meat, perpendicular to it. The tip of the asparagus should be lined up with the bottom of the prosciutto strip. Wrap the bottom end of prosciutto over the aspragus and holding the meat tight, start rolling the asparagus up. The prosciutto strip will wrap around the whole length of the spear because it’s on an angle. You can try a different wrapping method but I find this is a very quick to do it. Don’t worry if parts of the asparagus spears are not covered completely.
Heat some ghee in a large, flat frying pan to sizzling hot. Fry wrapped asparagus spears for 1-2 minutes on each side or until prosciutto is brown and crispy. Do it in batches if preparing more asparagus than can fit in a pan.
