Roasted Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus with Haloumi Cheese and Lemon-Basil Oil


For the lemon-basil oil

  • 30 mL (2 tbsp) extra-virgin olive oil
  • Finely grated zest of 1/2 lemon
  • 15 mL (1 tbsp) basil, finely chopped
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Preheat the oven to 230 °C (450 °F).
  2. Slice the Saputo Doré-Mi Haloumi cheese lengthwise into 16 sticks. Cut the prosciutto slices in half.
  3. Lay 1 half slice of prosciutto on a working surface. Top with 1 asparagus stalk and 1 Haloumi cheese stick. Roll tightly and transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Repeat to wrap all the asparagus.
  4. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until prosciutto is crispy, cheese is golden brown and the asparagus are cooked, but not mushy (be careful not to overcook the asparagus). Let rest for a few minutes.
  5. To make the lemon-basil oil, combine all the ingredients in a small bowl.
  6. Right before serving, drizzle the prosciutto-wrapped asparagus with lemon-basil oil or serve the flavoured oil on the side as a dip.
