Asparagus Wrapped in Prosciutto w Crispy Breadcrumbs
1 lb. asparagus, woody ends snapped off
2-3 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for breadcrumbs
salt & pepper to taste
1/2 cup breadcrumbs or Panko
zest of 2 lemons
handful parsley leaves, minced
1/4 cup grated parmigiano
1/4 lb. prosciutto, thinly sliced
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Line a sheet pan with some foil. Drizzle a little olive oil. Add the asparagus and gently coat with the oil. Season with salt & pepper. Roast in the oven for about 10 minutes until done (alternatively you can grill the asparagus by placing a pan or cast iron skillet on the grill).
Meanwhile add a little olive oil to a small skillet and cook the breadcrumb until it toasts to a golden color. Re-move breadcrumb to a medium mixing bowl. Add the lemon zest, parsley and parmigiano. Season lightly with salt and pepper and stir to combine well.
Wrap each asparagus in a slice of prosciutto and lay them out on a platter. Sprinkle with flavored bread-crumbs.
