  • Wash asparagus and break off tough ends - they will snap easily at the point where the stem becomes tender.
  • Heat oil and butter (use all oil or all butter if preferred) in a skillet large enough to lay spears flat. When oil is hot, add asparagus and roll spears around a bit to coat with oil. Salt lightly. Cover and cook until just barely tender, about 4 - 5 minutes (time will vary depending on thickness of spears).
  • Remove from pan and divide into 4 bunches. Wrap a slice of prosciutto around each bunch and carefully return to pan. Cook, uncovered, turning once, for 3 - 4 minutes to crisp up the prosciutto. Serve hot, with lemon wedges if using.
