  • 2

    Ingredients

    • 24 Whole medjool dates

    • 1 Small container Marcona salted almonds

  • 3

    Cut the prosciutto into 24 pieces lengthwise. To wrap each date, place one at the bottom of a strip of prosciutto, then roll the prosciutto around the date to cover, leaving a little bit of the date showing on each end.

    Ingredients

    • 8 Ounce prosciutto

  • 4

    Add 2 Tablespoons olive oil to the preheated cast iron pan. Place the dates in the pan and cook, searing the prosciutto on all sides, turning as needed, about 3 to 5 minutes total. When the prosciutto is crispy, carefully remove the pan from the grill.

    Ingredients

    • 2 Tablespoon olive oil

  • 5

    Zest the limes over the pan so the citrus zest is absorbed into the olive oil and onto the dates. Place the dates on a serving platter. Sprinkle with flake salt, an additional drizzle of olive oil, honey and serve. Enjoy!
