Grilled Asparagus Wrapped
4 ounces thinly sliced
prosciutto di Parma
16 Alpine Fresh* asparagus
1/2 cup orange juice
Grated zest of 1 orange
1 garlic clove, chopped
1 tablespoon finely
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 large eggs
2 large egg yolks
2 1/2 cups olive oil
1 tablespoon kosher salt
Freshly cracked black
Separate and lay out prosciutto slices on a flat surface. Lay an asparagus spear on a slight diagonal on
the bottom of each slice and roll, covering as much of
the stalk as possible and leaving the tip visible.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Place on a
small baking sheet. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
To prepare the aioli, combine orange juice, zest, garlic,
shallots, cayenne, eggs and egg yolks in the bowl of a
small food processor. Process until the ingredients are
blended. With the processor running, slowly drizzle in
olive oil, blending until the mixture is emulsified. Season
with salt and pepper to taste. Chill for about 30 minutes.
Preheat a gas grill or prepare a fire in a charcoal grill.
Place the asparagus on the grill and cook, turning
occasionally, until it is just tender and the prosciutto
is crisped, about 4-6 minutes. If the prosciutto
browns before the asparagus is cooked, move the
spears to a cooler part of the grill.
Arrange the asparagus on plates and spoon aioli over
them. Place the remaining aioli in a bowl for dipping.
Makes 4 servings.

Note: Herbes de Provence is a dried herbal blend
that typically contains rosemary, fennel, marjoram,
basil, sage, thyme, summer savory and lavender. If
you can’t find it, make your own mix of a few of the
designated dried herbs that you have on your pantry
shelf. It will be delicious.
Tips: If you don’t have the specified olives, feel free
to use any combination. Fresh herbs such as rosemary,
thyme and basil look great as a garnish.
