  • 12 asparagus spears
  • 6 slices prosciutto
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1/4 - 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 - 3 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese optional



  • Hold one asparagus spear with one hand on each end. Bend up and away from you, towards the flat end of the spear. When it snaps, use that spear as a guideline and chop the rest of the spears to match it in length.
  • Slice the prosciutto slices in half lengthwise.


  • Wrap one half of a prosciutto slice around one asparagus spear, in a spiral fashion. Set aside, and repeat with remaining prosciutto slices and asparagus spears.
  • Brush each wrapped spear with olive oil, and season with black pepper.

Air Fry

  • Preheat air fryer to 400°F. Lightly spray the basket with cooking spray (we like to use an olive oil or avocado oil spray).
  • Add wrapped asparagus spears in a single layer, leaving a little bit of room for the hot air to circulate between each spear. If needed, you can cook these in batches.
  • Air fry for 8 minutes, or until asparagus is tender, with crispy tops, and the prosciutto is golden.

Garnish and serve

  • Sprinkle cooked asparagus spears with grated Parmesan cheese if desired, then serve hot.

  2. Exact cooking time may vary, depending on your air fryer model, and the thickness of your asparagus.
