  • Make sure all the spears are the same size in length.
  • Roll the asparagus in the oil and add a little salt and pepper so that it sticks on nicely.
  • Gently cook the asparagus in a large non-stick frying pan, making sure you have a nice colour all over. Then remove and cool.
  • Once cool, cut a breadstick to the same length or just shorter, as the asparagus spear.
  • Then wrap the air-dried ham around the two, nice and tightly. Repeat until all the spears are wrapped.
  • In the same pan, gently sauté the asparagus wrapped ham to take a little colour, turn over and spread each wrapped spear with a little mustard.
  • Place on a baking tray then a sprinkling of breadcrumbs and pop under a medium grill to brown slightly.
  • Serve with the caper, basil and lemon mayo.
