How to Make It

Step 1    

Light a hardwood charcoal fire. Brush the asparagus with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill the asparagus over moderately high heat, turning, until lightly charred and almost tender, 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate and let cool.

Step 2    

Meanwhile, in a small cast-iron skillet, heat the 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add the bread crumbs and garlic and cook over moderately high heat, stirring, until the crumbs are golden and crisp, 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool slightly, then stir in the Parmigiano-Reggiano, parsley and lemon zest; season with salt and pepper.

Step 3    

Divide the asparagus into 6 even piles. On a work surface, arrange the prosciutto slices in 6 pairs, overlapping slightly. Set an asparagus pile on each prosciutto pair and roll up.

Step 4    

Grill the bundles over moderately high heat, turning, until the asparagus are tender and the prosciutto is crisp, 4 minutes. Transfer to a platter. Sprinkle the lemony bread crumbs on top and serve.

Suggested Pairing

Bubbly, fruity prosecco is a simple pairing for complex starters.
