How to Make Lemon Parmesan Phyllo Wrapped Asparagus

Blanching your asparagus

 

The first step to make these phyllo wrapped asparagus is to blanch your asparagus. This only needs to be done if your asparagus are thick. If your asparagus is thin, you can skip this step.

The phyllo wrapped asparagus will cook in about 10 minutes, so blanching before baking will ensure that the asparagus is cooked in time. 

To blanch the asparagus, simply boil it for a short amount of time. Mine took 3 minutes. 

 

Prepare the phyllo 

 

It is important to work with one sheet of phyllo at a time while keeping the remaining sheets wrapped or covered in damp paper towels. Phyllo will dry out quickly, so this will keep the remaining sheets fresh.

Lay one sheet of phyllo out flat. Lightly brush with melted butter. Fold the sheet in half to make a long rectangle so that it is about the same length as the asparagus.

Brush the phyllo again with butter, then sprinkle 3 tbsp of parmesan cheese and 1 tsp of lemon zest as evenly as possible. Using pastry scissors or a knife, slice the phyllo into 10 strips. 

 

Wrap the asparagus

Place a piece of asparagus on an angle on one phyllo strip. Start the phyllo just below the head of the asparagus, and roll the phyllo and asparagus so that most of the asparagus is wrapped. Repeat this process with the remaining strips.
