Serrano Wrapped Asparagus

This is super easy to make and can be made a couple hours ahead of time.

1 bunch asparagus (try to get spears that aren’t too thin)
thinly sliced serrano ham
extra-virgin olive oil

Lightly coat a rimmed baking sheet pan with olive oil (I used olive oil spray). Cut each piece of serrano ham in half and wrap around the center of the asparagus.  Set the asparagus on the pan and drizzle very lightly with olive oil (no more than 1 or 2 T) and sprinkle with kosher or coarse salt and freshly ground pepper.  Bake in a preheated 400ยบ oven for about 10-12 minutes.  You want it to be cooked but firm enough to hold with your fingers.  Easy peasy.
This pairs well with Verdejo as well.
