Ingredients

  • 1 pound (or 12) fresh Asparagus, washed and hard ends trimmed
  • 12 strips/slices low-sodium uncooked bacon

Option 1 Seasoning (Combined):

  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder

Option 2 Seasoning (Whisked):

  • ½ cup Sriracha hot sauce
  • 1 teaspoon chili hot oil
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar

Spicy Mayonnaise Dipping Sauce (Optional):

  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons Sriracha hot sauce
  • 1 ½ tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste

Directions 

Wrap each asparagus with 1 piece of bacon around (or half size of bacon depending on the length of the asparagus), starting from the bottom of the tips, or whichever you’re comfortable with. Secure the bacon-wrapped asparagus with a toothpick, if need be, and arrange them in a shallow dish or in a flat clean board.

IF using the 1st Option Seasoning: Combine all ingredients in a small bowl, and then sprinkle the combined seasoning well on top of the bacon-wrapped asparagus.

IF using the 2nd Second Option Seasoning: Place all ingredients in a small bowl and whisk until well incorporated. Coat each asparagus with the Sriracha sauce using a basting brush.

Dipping Sauce: While we’re good having this delicious stuff without a sauce, a lot of people though enjoy them with some on the side. And the sauce that goes really well with this yummy bacon-wrapped asparagus is none other than a (spicy) mayonnaise dipping sauce. To  make it; Place all the ingredients in a small bowl and whisk until well blended. Transfer to a dipping sauce serving bowl, and set aside until ready to use.

Meanwhile, heat the grill pan over medium-high heat. When ready, place the bacon-wrapped asparagus in the pan and grill for 5-8 minutes, or until all sides are golden brown. Transfer the asparagus to a serving dish and serve warm. Enjoy!

Note: This stuff is so addictively delicious so may double the amount of the ingredients including the dipping sauce, if necessary.
