- In medium bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, orange zest, orange juice and pepper. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
- In vegetable steamer (or asparagus pot; see tip), cook asparagus until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Rinse asparagus under cold water to stop cooking. Pat dry.
- Wrap each asparagus with piece of prosciutto. Serve with orange cream for dipping. Garnish with orange wedges.
Tip: There are tall, narrow pots designed specifically for steaming asparagus. The spears are placed standing up in a steamer insert, which puts the fatter ends of the spears closer to the heat source and the more delicate tips farther away. Of course, a regular steamer works fine.
