Lazy Meals: Smoked salmon and sauteed veggies with basil pesto and prosciutto-wrapped asparagus

August 21, 2011

OK, so the title of this post is quite a mouthful…as is the meal itself!

I hope that people following the blog are getting the idea that Paleo food is both creative and relatively easy. Really, it is 🙂 Except maybe for pork belly, but let’s not go there.

I got the idea for the prosciutto-wrapped asparagus spears from Paleo Australia and simply paired these with smoked salmon, sauteed veggies and my homemade basil pesto.  The meal was a winner and can be made from prep to serving in 45 minutes, less if you’re a whiz with a kitchen knife!

In terms of prep, this was very simple: chop and sautee veggies with plenty of garlic – even if you plan on smooching someone, don’t skimp on the garlic! – grill the asparagus spears – I love the flavour a cast iron skillet imparts – then wrap in proscuitto and serve with the smoked salmon and basil pesto. Ta-da!
