Mayonnaise

  • 80 milliliters mayonnaise
  • ½ teaspoon finely grated orange zest
  • 1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
 
  • 455 grams asparagus
  • 1½ tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 115 grams thinly sliced prosciutto

Instructions

  • Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat (180° to 230°C).
    Prepare the grill for cooking over medium heat (200°C).
  • In a small bowl whisk the mayonnaise ingredients.
  • Remove and discard the tough bottom of each asparagus spear by grasping each end and bending it gently until it snaps at its natural point of tenderness, usually two-thirds of the way down the spear. For very thick spears, after snapping off the thick ends, use a vegetable peeler to peel off the outer skin from the bottom half of each spear.
  • Spread the asparagus on a large plate. Drizzle the oil over the top and season evenly with the salt and pepper. Turn the spears until they are evenly coated.
  • Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the asparagus (perpendicular to the grate) over direct medium heat, with the lid closed, until browned in spots but not charred, 6 to 8 minutes, turning occasionally. Remove from the grill and keep warm.
