"simple and impressive... we used ham rather than prosciutto. All of our guests enjoyed nibbling on the asparagus and we ended up using the left-over sauce to add a little flavor to the salmon."

"While visiting relatives I made this and they all loved it so much, we had to print several copies! Yes, I have already made it again!"
