Week 2: Roasted asparagus

The Recipe
2 tbsp olive oil
6 slices parma or serrano ham
12 fresh green asparagus
Salt, pepper

Heat the oven to 200C. Remove the very bottom of the stem of the asparagus - see where it snaps easily, that's the place to cut it off. Wrap the ham around the asparagus and put it in an ovenproof dish. Drizzle with oil and add salt and pepper according to taste.

Let the asparagus roast for 8-12 minutes according to thickness. They should still be firm when bitten into.

Serve hot with aioli for dipping.

The Verdict
Yummy, yummy, yummy, yummy! Perfect for an appetizer or part of a tapas meal. They're really easy to make and the result is both delicious and fancy looking. Definitely worth a repeat!
