This quick and easy appetizer from Sophie Grigson is addictive to eat - and a real winner with drinks before dinner!


1. Set the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Now simply take a spear of asparagus, wrap a slice of Prosciutto ham around it and lay each one on a baking tray, brushing them lightly with butter to ensure they do not stick.

2. Cook for 3-4 minutes until the asparagus is nicely roasted and the ham is crispy.

Simple and delicious! Only I found it took longer than 3-4 minutes to cook (more like 10-12 min), or maybe I just had some particularly chunky asparagus spears. Thank you.

Even better if spears are soaked in cider wine, parsley and garlic, before applying the above method. And use black forest ham, instead of prosciutto.(More flavour)
