Roasted Asparagus with Crispy Prosciutto Chips

Darpan News Desk, 12 Dec, 2018

    This faster, easier version of prosciutto-wrapped asparagus will disappear quickly from your holiday dinner table. Rather than wrapping the spears in prosciutto slices, we’ve crisped the prosciutto in the microwave and broken it into bite-size chips to sprinkle over the tender roasted asparagus.

    Makes: 4 servings
    Prep time: 10 minutes
    Cook time: 15 minutes
    Ready in: 20 minutes
    Difficulty Level: Easy

    Per serving: 120 calories, fat 11 g (Saturated 3 g), sodium 280 mg, carbohydrate 4 g, fibre 1 g, sugars 0 g, protein 4 g

    INGREDIENTS

    ● 3 slices PC Free From Prosciutto Dry-Cured Ham
    ● 1 pkg (300 g) frozen PC Asparagus Spears
    ● 1 tbsp (15 mL) olive oil
    ● 1/4 tsp (1 mL) each salt and black pepper
    ● 1/4 cup (50 mL) PC Memories Of Eggs Benedict Hollandaise Sauce

    DIRECTIONS

    1. Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C).

    2. Arrange prosciutto on paper towel-lined large microwave-safe plate, overlapping slightly if necessary. Cover with separate sheet of paper towel. Microwave until crispy, about 2 minutes. Let cool. Set aside.

    3. Toss together frozen asparagus, oil, salt and pepper on baking sheet. Arrange in single layer. Bake, turning asparagus once, until tender-crisp, 10 to 12 minutes.

    4. Meanwhile, place hollandaise sauce in small microwave-safe bowl or liquid measuring cup. Microwave 15 seconds; stir and repeat until heated through. Set aside. Break prosciutto into bite-size pieces; set aside.

    5. Transfer asparagus to serving platter. Drizzle with hollandaise sauce and sprinkle with prosciutto.

    Chef’s Tip: You can crisp the prosciutto in the oven, if you prefer. Arrange the slices in a single layer on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and bake in 425°F (220°C) oven until crispy, 5 to 7 minutes.

    They had a strange crunch to them that I soon figured out was fried lentils (in this case white urad dhal) so I have added these and a little more right at the end as peanuts, but if you don’t fancy them then just leave them out.
