Incredibly tasty and easy to make, these Asparagus and Parma Ham bites are the perfect party snack!
- Bunch of green asparagus, trim off woody ends
- 50g unsalted butter
- Salt and freshly ground pepper
- 1 packet Parma ham or similar charcuterie to wrap
- Small amount rapeseed oil
- 75g Parmesan cheese
Lay the prepared asparagus in a sous vide bag, add a little butter and seasoning. Seal and cook on Sous Vide 75°C for up to 15 minutes depending upon the thickness of the asparagus. To test, squeeze the base of the asparagus spear – it should give a little but still be firm.
Remove the asparagus from the bag and wrap tightly with the Parma ham. Warm a saucepan on the induction hob to a medium heat and add a small amount of the rapeseed oil. Add the wrapped asparagus spears and cook until the ham is lightly browned and crisped up.
Remove from the heat and cut each spear in half if they are long. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve on slates with cocktail sticks.
