  • A bundle of asparagus spears
  • A pack of pancetta, prosciutto or parma ham
  • A slice of butter
  • Sea salt and black pepper


  1. Snap or slice the woody ends off the asparagus. Wrap each spear with a slice of pancetta or a halved (lengthwise) strip of prosciutto or parma ham.
  2. Pop the wrapped spears on a hot grill pan and under the oven grill, or on the barbecue. Turn your spears a couple of times, until the ham is crisped up and the tips are tender. Remove from oven. Brush the tips with butter.
