There is nothing like Grilled Asparagus as far as we are concerned! This recipe includes three variations, all are delicious! This recipe is so easy and the result is fabulous every time!
- 1 pound asparagus, fresh washed and trimmed
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- salt - sprinkles
- pepper - sprinkles
- 1/2 lemon, juice only or 1/4 cup of lemon juice, optional
- parmesan, grated sprinkles, as needed, optional
Preheat the grill to medium. For a charcoal grill, spread the coals evenly under the grate. For a gas grill turn all elements on. Place your trimmed asparagus spears in a zip-loc bag. Add the oil and adjust so all spears are coated. Dump asparagus into a pan and sprinkle on the salt and pepper. Adjust again. Leave the asparagus in the pan until ready to cook. Brush the grill grates lightly with olive oil. Use tongs to place the spears on the cooking grate crosswise so they won’t fall through the grate. Grill for 5 to 10 minutes, turning every minute or two so all sides are exposed to the heat and start to brown in spots. Watch your asparagus does not blacken and burn. The larger the asparagus spears, the longer they will take to cook. Remove from the grill and prepare to serve. You have the option to serve the asparagus immediately as it is or you have two other options. You can sprinkle asparagus immediately after grilling with grated parmesan cheese or squeeze the juice of half of one lemon all over it. We have even used both and the result is always delicious. Enjoy!
