White Asparagus with Prosciutto (Gluten & Grain Free, Low Carb) From Front On a Plate

Asparagus is one of my favorite vegetables! I love both green and white asparagus… but they are good to use for different purposes. I prefer the green asparagus when they are not playing the main part in the dish. Like serving it in an omelette, with some baked tomatoes or as a simple side dish to your main course. In general I think I prefer green asparagus over white asparagus. But, when I want to make a dish where the asparagus is the main start I turn to white asparagus. I feel it makes itself better in the spotlight than playing a side part. This recipe is for a delicate, yet flavorful white asparagus dish served with prosciutto, a balsamic vinaigrette and shaved parmesan cheese. This dish is great to serve as an appetizer or starter.

A few tips:

  • Remove the woody part at the bottom of the asparagus by snipping it where it breaks. You might think you’re waisting a part of the asparagus but you’re Not. You really don’t want to include it in your dish.
  • Shave the asparagus using a potato shaver to remove the outer tough layer.
  • Cook the asparagus just until its “Al Dente” you don’t want it to be cooked through, soft and soggy.
