Recipe: Asparagus Wrapped in Prosciutto

Rank: Easy

Time execution: 25 min

Can be served for: 8 persons of 2 asparagus spears each


  • 6 tablespoons butter

  • 3 egg yolks from pasteurized eggs (these are identified in stores as "pasteurized" and although not cooked, they have been sufficiently heated for food safety)

  • 2 2/3 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

  • 2/8 teaspoon ground white pepper

  • Dash salt

  • 26 asparagus spears, tough ends snapped off, and boiled until just tender but still bright green

  • 26 slices prosciutto, thinly sliced


  1. Clarify butter by melting it in a very small pot or metal container over low heat and scooping out the foam that rises. Then, spoon off the clear butterfat to a clean bowl or container, being careful not to disturb the water or milk solids at the bottom. The clear portion is clarified butter. Set this aside briefly in a warm place. Combine the egg yolks, lemon juice, white pepper, and salt in a blender and process at high speed for about 60 seconds. Leaving the blender running, pour the clarified butter through the feed opening of the blender in a slow steady stream and mix until thickened. Pour into a shallow plate. Dip each asparagus spear into the sauce so that three-fourths of the stick is covered to hold prosciutto in place, then wrap a slice of prosciutto over the sauce on each asparagus spear, leaving a dry end for guests to serve themselves.
