Ingredients

  • 1 bunch fresh asparagus spears
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup ORGRAN Corn Crispy Crumbs
  • a little olive oil, to brush asparagus
  • 4 slices thin prosciutto, cut into thin strips.
  • shaved Parmesan cheese

Method

  • 1. Remove thick bottoms of spears and discard.
  • 2. Cut bottom of spears by rolling spears towards you and cutting into a point like the sharp end of a pencil. This is done to ‘shock’ the asparagus when it is placed in boiling water. This will help to retain the green colour.
  • 3. Pour a large quantity of boiling water into a large saucepan. Place onto heat and bring to the boil.
  • 4. Blanch asparagus by carefully dropping into boiling water. Leave in water for 2 minutes.
  • 5. Remove immediately from boiling water and plunge into cold water for 3 minutes. This will help to refresh the colour.
  • 6. Pour oil into a small frying pan. Warm over a gentle heat. Add ORGRAN corn crumbs. Increase heat. Cook until crumbs are golden brown. Stir to prevent crumbs burning.
  • 7. To serve – drop asparagus into boiling water for 1 minute to reheat. Drain well.
  • 8. Glaze asparagus spears with olive oil to give a high gloss.
  • 9. Wrap thin strips of prosciutto around each spear of asparagus. Arrange on a serving plate. Top with shaved Parmesan cheese and sprinkle with ORGRAN corn crumbs.
