BBQ asparagus wrapped in prosciutto with whipped feta sauce

BBQ asparagus wrapped in prosciutto with whipped feta sauce


Makes 12


  • 12 asparagus spears
  • 12 slice prosciutto

For sauce

  • 80 g feta
  • 80 g cream cheese
  • 2 tbs cream
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 tbs chives (chopped)
  • freshly cracked pepper


Wash asparagus and trim woody ends.

Wrap each asparagus spear in a slice of prosciutto, pressing firmly to seal ends.

To make sauce, whip feta and creamed cheese in a food processor until soft. With the motor running, add cream gradually until you have a dipping consistency. Quickly blitz in lemon zest, chives and pepper. Scoop out into a small serving bowl.

Heat a grill or barbecue over high heat. Brush with a little olive oil if necessary. Cook prosciutto-wrapped asparagus for approximately 7 minutes, turning often, until asparagus is tender. Serve with whipped feta on the side for dipping.

Serving Suggestions


  • A good way to trim asparagus is to hold it with both hands near the end and bend it until the stalk snaps.
  • Cooking times will vary depending on the thickness of the asparagus. This recipe is more suited to a medium stalk rather than very thin or thick.
  • If prosciutto slices are very long, you could use half a slice for each spear.
  • Choose a creamy feta rather than a hard crumbly one.
  • The feta sauce is very salty so be careful to taste before adding extra seasoning.
