1. Snap or slice the woody ends off the asparagus. Wrap each spear with a slice of pancetta or a halved (lengthwise) strip of prosciutto or parma ham.
2. Pop the wrapped asparagus spears on a hot grill pan and under the oven grill, or on the barbecue. Turn the spears a couple of times, till the ham is crisped up and the asparagus tips are tender. Remove from oven or barbecue. Brush the tips with butter, season and serve.
