This is one of the best asparagus recipes I have ever used, and I LOVE asparagus. The only change I made was to add garlic into the oil with the prosciutto, and then again with the asparagus. I also used some leftover chicken stock I had around instead of the water. YUM
Asparagus flavor lost in too much oil.
Delicious! The best asparagus I've ever had.
This was absolutely scrumptious. The lemon really brought out the flavor of the asparagus. The texture was perfect, crisp, but cooked. I used pancetta because I had some left over from another recipe. The result was perfection! Another superb Chef John recipe!
I loved the flavor the lemon gave it at the end. The ham didn't really seem necessary. Asparagus has such a strong wonderful flavor on its own without the ham or prosciutto. Will definitely make again, just without any ham or prosciutto. Maybe ill try sliced almonds in its place.
So easy to cook and delicious! Ham, asparagus and lemon plus garlic... It's just perfect combination! You do not need to change a thing about this recipe. Guaranteed.
