This is a simple dish with great flavors. The alioli is very Spanish. You will never boil asparagus again!
- 24 asparagus spears cut to the same length and washed
- 12 slices of prosciutto cut in half the short direction
Wrap a half of a piece of prosciutto around the middle of each asparagus spear. Place on a baking sheet. The wrapped spears can be places directly on a heated grill, a BBQ, or they can be broiled. Brown one side, turn and continue cooking. When they are done, remove from grill and place on a serving plate. Cover with foil until ready to serve. Serve with Alioli sauce.

- pinch of salt
- 2 tbsps olive oil
- ¾ cup mayonnaise
Place garlic and salt in a large mortar and pestle. Mash together until it forms a paste. Add olive oil and continue blending. Stir in mayonnaise and place in a serving dish. Serve with asparagus.
