Prosciutto-wrapped Asparagus

The sauce, reminiscent of deviled eggs, makes an elegant accompaniment for asparagus. Prep and Cook Time: 30 minutes.

  • Yield: Makes 4 servings


  • 16 none asparagus spears
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 none egg, hard-boiled, peeled, and finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon finely grated fresh lemon zest
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 none slices prosciutto


1. Snap woody ends off asparagus spears. In a large frying pan, bring 3/4 cup water to boil. Add salt and trimmed asparagus, cover, and cook until asparagus is tender, about 4 minutes. Drain, dry, and let cool.

2. In a small bowl, combine sour cream, chopped egg, parsley, lemon juice, mustard, lemon zest, and pepper. Add salt to taste.

3. Lay 4 asparagus spears on each piece of prosciutto and roll up. Repeat to form 4 bundles. Serve with sauce.
