This dish makes a fantastic appetizer. It tastes phenomenal and is super easy to prepare. Crispy prosciutto wraps tender asparagus with a cheesy, garlicky surprise inside. The richness of the Boursin is balanced by the hint of lemon.

Servings

2 to 4

Ingredients

    • 1 pound (1 bunch) asparagus, medium-sized spears
    • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
    • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
    • 5 ounces Boursin garlic herb cheese
    • 1 teaspoon finely grated fresh lemon zest
    • About 10 slices prosciutto (1 slice for every 3 asparagus spears)

Instructions

Prepare the grill for direct grilling over medium-high heat, about 400°F.

Trim the toughened bases off the asparagus spears and discard, leaving each spear the same length. Whisk together the lemon juice and olive oil in a medium bowl and toss in the asparagus to thoroughly coat.

Work together the Boursin cheese and lemon zest to thoroughly combine.

Lay out a slice of prosciutto. Place three asparagus spears across the end of the slice and add a 1 1/2 teaspoon-sized dollop of cheese mixture on the center of the asparagus. Roll the prosciutto tightly around the bundle. Repeat, rolling 3 spears into each slice of prosciutto.

Grill the wraps over direct heat, turning frequently, until the asparagus is marked and the prosciutto is crispy. Serve hot.
