Recipe

Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus With Sauteed Morels

  • Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 large bunch asparagus, woody ends trimmed
  • 6 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 8 ounces fresh morel, or chanterelle mushrooms, stems trimmed, rinsed and patted dry
  • 1 tablespoon fresh minced tarragon

Directions

  • Bring a saucepan of salted water to a boil. Place the asparagus in the water and blanch until just fork tender, yet still firm, 4 to 6 minutes. Remove the asparagus from the water and dry on paper towels.
  • In a skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms, and sauté until soft and they start to give off their liquid, about 4 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and stir in the tarragon.
  • Wrap 3 asparagus stalks with a prosciutto slice to make a bundle. Repeat with remaining asparagus and prosciutto. Place on a serving platter and spoon the warm mushrooms over the top. Serve.
