Now is a good time to make this dish as asparagus is now in season. Aren’t they pretty? This is a very easy dish to prepare– just wrap bacon strip around asparagus and secure with a toothpick, grill it or pan fry in dry clean wok on high heat until bacon is brown and asparagus is just cooked. Drain on paper towel and remove toothpick before serving. This makes a great party finger food as well.
Tips choosing bacon and asparagus: I choose bacons that has less fat and less sodium to make it slightly “healthier”. Don’t waste money on thick sliced bacon. For asparagus, I choose the ones with thicker/bigger stems (to offset the saltiness from bacon) and peel off the skin 2″ from the bottom as that part might get chewy fiber.
