Expert Tips

You can use white and green asparagus.

For al dente asparagus, don't leave them in boiling water for more than 3 minutes.

Take the container of Pillsbury® crescent dough out of the fridge when you're ready to use it. Otherwise, the dough will get too soft and you'll have a hard time separating the triangles to cut them.

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 350°F. Cover a baking tray with wax paper.
  • 2 Wash the asparagus in fresh water and carefully cut 1/2 inch from the bottom.
  • 3 Put the water in a large pot over medium high heat and bring it to a boil. Cook the asparagus for three minutes. Drain them and immediately put them in a container with water and ice, so they cool off and remain firm.
  • 4 Cut the Serrano ham slices in half, lengthwise.
  • 5 With a pastry brush, cover the asparagus with butter, roll them in bread crumbs and wrap them in Serrano ham, without covering the tips.
  • 6 Open the container of Pillsbury® crescent dough following the instructions. Cut each dough triangle into two pieces. Carefully wrap each asparagus with the dough, covering the Serrano ham.
  • 7 Arrange the asparagus uniformly, two inches apart from each other.
  • 8 Use a pastry brush to paint them with butter. Bake them for 12 minutes or until they’re slightly golden.
  • 9 While the asparagus bake, prepare the sauce. In a medium bowl, mix all the ingredients. Set aside.
  • 10 When the asparagus are ready, remove them from the oven, place on a serving tray and decorate with the sauce.
