Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus With Orange Cream 600


  • ²⁄₃ cup light mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp. grated orange zest
  • ¹⁄₃ cup orange juice
  • ½ tsp. pepper
  • 18 jumbo asparagus
  • 9 thin slices prosciutto, halved lengthwise
  • Orange wedges, for garnish


  1. In medium bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, orange zest, orange juice and pepper. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  2. In vegetable steamer (or asparagus pot; see tip), cook asparagus until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Rinse asparagus under cold water to stop cooking. Pat dry.
  3. Wrap each asparagus with piece of prosciutto. Serve with orange cream for dipping. Garnish with orange wedges.
Tip: There are tall, narrow pots designed specifically for steaming asparagus. The spears are placed standing up in a steamer insert, which puts the fatter ends of the spears closer to the heat source and the more delicate tips farther away. Of course, a regular steamer works fine.
