  • Prepare the grill for cooking over medium heat (400°F).
  • 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 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.
  • Grill the prosciutto slices over medium heat just until crisp, 2 to 3 minutes, turning once. Remove from the grill and cut each slice into pieces about 2 inches across.
  • Arrange the prosciutto and asparagus on four plates and spoon the mayonnaise over the top. Serve immediately.
