Make Grilled Asparagus

Make Grilled Asparagus
  • Outdoor grilling season is finally here, and it is the perfect opportunity to sneak more delicious, healthy fresh vegetables into your diet. This easy grilled asparagus recipe uses extra-virgin olive oil and fresh or dried herbs. It makes an excellent complement to any grilled fish or meat dish.

  • Wash and clean one bunch of fresh asparagus and use a sharp kitchen knife to trim the woody ends. Approximately one to two inches should be trimmed off of each asparagus spear.
  • Place asparagus spears in a re-sealable plastic bag and add one to two tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil, a pinch of coarsely grated sea salt and fresh ground pepper, one clove minced fresh garlic, and a teaspoon of dried or a handful of fresh chopped rosemary. Toss asparagus and all other ingredients until each spear is well coated.
  • Put asparagus spears on a sheet of aluminum foil heavy enough to place directly on grill rack. Spray foil with cooking spray to prevent sticking. Heat charcoal grill, or gas grill and cook asparagus spears over medium to low heat for 7-10 minutes, depending on how crunchy you prefer them to be. Enjoy!
