A is for Asparagus

My A-Z Guide to Summer - A is for Asparagus

British asparagus is so yummy fresh and so worth the wait.

I love this simple recipe that is so tasty and so simple to make from one of my favourite recipe websites bbc good food recipe

Asparagus, mozzarella & prosciutto parcels


  1. Blanch the asparagus for 2 minutes then refresh under cold water. Cut each mozzarella slice in half and sit both pieces on top of 2 spears of asparagus. Top with 2 more spears then wrap the asparagus in prosciutto so the mozzarella is enclosed (you will need 2 or 3 strips).
  2. Heat a little olive oil in a pan, then carefully fry the parcels until the prosciutto has crisped and the mozzarella oozes.
  3. Whisk together the olive oil and vinegar and add the basil. Serve each parcel with salad leaves and a little dressing drizzled over.

Perfect as a starter or light lunch in this beautiful sunny weather.
