Prosciutto wrapped asparagus, stuffed with mozzarella

A sure fire way to impress any guest you have over is to serve these sophisticated starters. Super simple to make and will leave a lasting impression. The great thing about these parcels is that they pair up with just about any main – making you appear like the ultimate chef!

Serves 4 (starters)

What you’ll need: 

12 asparagus spears

125g mozzarella cheese, sliced into 4 pieces

8-12 slices of prosciutto

olive oil

salad leaves to serve

Let’s Kook: 

1) Bring a pot of water to the boil and trim the asparagus spears. Throw in the asparagus and blanch for 2 minutes (no longer, you still want the crunch) and then rinse under cold water. Line up 2 asparagus spears side by side.

2) Cut each mozzarella cheese slice in half and place 2 pieces on top of  the asparagus spears. Top with another spear and wrap the asparagus with the prosciutto (you’ll need about 2-3 strips each) ensuring the mozzarella is enclosed.


3) Heat the olive oil in the pan and then carefully fry the parcels until the prosciutto has crisped up and the mozzarella oozes.

4) Serve each parcel with a side of salad leaves and a little extra virgin olive oil drizzled over.


Till next time…Outskies!
