Ham Wrapped Asparagus
|1 1/2 lb.|
Ham lunchmeat, from the deli, thin sliced
Asparagus spears, seasoned
White wine vinegar
Stick butter, clarified
Salt and black pepper to taste
Pre-heat grill on a low setting.
Prepare the asparagus by wrapping each spear with ½ slice of ham, set aside.
Heat the vinegar, wine and shallot in a sauté pan over medium heat until volume is reduced by half. Whisk with the egg yolks in a stainless steel bowl until smooth.
Place the bowl over a pot of simmering water; continue whisking. Be sure to not allow the eggs to scramble.
Slowly drizzle the butter in the mixture while whisking until it thickens and doubles in volume. Add a small amount of hot water into sauce if it becomes too thick. Season to the desired likeness.
Cook the ham wrapped asparagus until tender. Serve hot with hollandaise sauce.
