Recipe: Asparagus wrapped in parma ham

This isn’t so much a recipe but more of an assembly. And it’s one of my favourite meals when mixed with other interesting foods – but more on that later…

Ingredients to serve 2 people:

  • 1 bunch of asparagus (12 spears)
  • 6 slices of parma ham or prosciutto
  • Spray oil or olive oil


1. Wrap 2 asparagus spears in 1/2 slice of parma ham and continue until you have used up all of the asparagus and ham

2. Spray a griddle pan or flat bottom frying pan with spray oil or drizzle a small amount of olive oil into the pan

3. Allow the oil to heat up and place the asparagus and ham rolls onto the heat

4. Leave for 2 minutes and then turn over for another 2 minutes

5. keep on the heat, turning regularly until the asparagus is cooked through without letting the ham burn

They are now ready!

Serve them with:

A poached egg – they are like dippy soldiers!

Steak – they make a meaty yet fresh side dish

Chicken and sauteed potatoes – the smokey ham adds another meaty flavour to the dish and the asparagus and potatoes work well together

Enjoy! xoxo
