Chef's Tip

Wrap the Asparagus in the ham first, then lay out the wraps and start rolling.


  1. Place the vinegar in a pan with the sugar and simmer until it is reduced by half and becomes syrupy. Refrigerate to cool.
  2. Preheat the grill or oven to 450°F and soak the wraps in warm water for several minutes.
  3. Toss the asparagus in the olive oil and separate into 4 bundles of 5. Wrap a slice of prosciutto around each bundle.
  4. Place each bundle on a Cedar wrap, roll up and secure with twine.
  5. Set the wraps in the grill or oven and cook for 6-8 minutes.
  6. To serve, untie the string and remove the outer strips of cedar. Drizzle with the balsamic sauce and sprinkle with lemon zest and smoked salt.

*Keep a spray bottle of water handy in case of flare-ups.
