The flavors of salty prosciutto, mild asparagus and a sweet-salty asian dipping sauce go so well together! This appetizer is great for fancy parties, and bonus – it comes together quite quickly! The prosciutto wrapped asparagus can be made ahead of time, as well as the sauce, and then when ready, they can be baked and served.
