Grilled Asparagus with Burrata & Prosciutto

Grilled Asparagus with Burrata and Prosciutto

I came across this dish while on a recent trip to San Francisco. Burrata is a mild and creamy Italian cheese that I’d say is between fresh Buffalo Mozzarella and a milky Ricotta. It lends an unexpected twist to the otherwise simple grilled vegetable. Prosciutto anchors the flavors with its pungent saltiness.
This lovely seasonal dish is a fresh mixture of texture and color.
It makes a delicious appetizer, light lunch, or as a dinner side dish on a warm summer night. Serves 4

*Try this recipe with any of these Island Olive Oils: Lemon, Persian lime, Tuscan herb, Basil, Garlic, Gremolata, Baklouti Green Chili, or any of our Premium EVOO’s
Ingredients:
1 1⁄2 -2 pounds fresh asparagus
4 oz. burrata
4 slices prosciutto
2-3 T (+more to drizzle) Island Olive Oil EVOO* 1 lemon
Sea salt & freshly ground pepper to taste
1⁄4 cup chopped toasted pistachios
slivered radish slices
Gremolata:
1⁄4 cup finely chopped Italian flat leaf parsley 1T lemon zest
1 clove minced garlic
Preheat grill.
Difficulty level: Easy-Medium
  
Zest 1 Tablespoon of lemon, set aside in a small bowl. Cut lemon in quarters. Rinse and cut off rough stalk ends of asparagus. In a heat resistant dish, add asparagus, juice of 1⁄4 lemon, EVOO, salt and pepper to taste, toss and set aside to marinate. Combine parsley and garlic to lemon zest. Add a drizzle of olive oil, a pinch of salt and a squeeze of lemon to “juice up” the mixture; stir to combine.
Grill asparagus until al dente. Set back in marinade dish.
Place the prosciutto in a layer on the bottom of a serving dish. Add the burrata on one side over the prosciutto, and lay asparagus over the prosciutto, and burrata. Drizzle with gremolata. Garnish with toasted pistachios and radish slivers.

This recipe is so versatile and easy I promise! It is more of a “formula” than a recipe.  Be creative and have fun!

Add something crunchy like walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts, pepitas…(for crunchy satisfying texture)

Add some fresh fruit like apples, grapes, pears, orange supremes…(for that burst of freshness)

Add some dried fruit like cranberries, cherries, raisins… (for a sweet/tart chew)

Add something with a little bite like red onion, pickled onion, green onion…(for a kick)

If you don’t like goat cheese or want to make this a hearty meal replace the croquettes with grilled shrimp or chicken, and add a sprinkle of blue cheese crumbles or feta. 

You can also change the dressing to mix any of your favorite Island Olive Oil and vinegar pairings

A shrub is also known as a drinking vinegar which has actually been around for a very long time. It was originally a way of preserving fruit. It’s usually made with apple cider vinegar, fruit and sweetened with sugar and becomes a sweet and sour syrup, but our traditionally made balsamic fruit flavored vinegars are an easy probiotic option without the addition of sugar.  A generous splash can be diluted with seltzer water, and can be spiked with a spirit so it’s a perfect alcohol-optional beverage.
