Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425°F. In a shallow dish combine panko, lemon-pepper seasoning, and garlic powder. Place cornstarch in a second shallow dish. Place eggs in a third shallow dish.

  • Place 2 Tbsp. oil in a 15 x 10 x 1-inch baking pan. Place pan in oven. Meanwhile, dip asparagus spears, one at a time, in eggs to moisten. Dip in cornstarch to coat. Dip in eggs again; dip in panko mixture to coat. Place on a tray while coating remaining spears.

  • Transfer all spears to hot pan. Drizzle with remaining oil. Bake 10 minutes or until golden, turning once.

  • Meanwhile, spread cut sides of rolls with mayonnaise. Place on a baking sheet. Broil, spread sides up, 5 minutes or until toasted. Cool slightly.

  • To assemble: Spread buns with half the Lemon Aïoli. Arrange prosciutto and asparagus on buns. Top with mint and chives. If desired, serve with remaining Lemon Aïoli.


In a small bowl stir together 1/2 cup mayonnaise, 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 1 clove very thinly sliced garlic, and 1/8 teaspoon salt.
