A healthy recipe ideal as a side dish.


  • 5 asparagus spears, woody ends removed
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp parmesan shavings, to garnish
  • 3 slices prosciutto


Step 1

Coat the asparagus in the oil and season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Cook in a hot griddle pan for 5-7 minutes, turning frequently, or until tender.

Step 2

Lay out the ham slices side-by-side, and pile the asparagus horizontally at one end before rolling up in the ham and placing back in the pan for 2-3 minutes, or until the ham is golden-brown and crisp. Set aside on a warm plate.

Step 3

Pour the balsamic vinegar into the pan used to cook the asparagus, scraping any browned bits at the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Cook for 1-2 minutes, or until reduced and sticky.

Step 4

To serve, spoon the balsamic reduction over the asparagus and garnish with parmesan shavings.
