Mmm. Asparagus. You can steam them, boil them, roast them, but I don’t think anything beats the flavor of asparagus that are simply grilled. The smoky flavor, the char marks. Tender, but still with a little crunch. Seriously good. I could (and have) eat them like French fries. Yum.
Grilled Asparagus Recipe
- 1 pound asparagus (estimate 1/4 pound per person), thick spears
- 1-2 Tbsp Olive oil
- Kosher salt
1 Preheat your grill for high, direct heat.
2 Prepare the asparagus by breaking or cutting off any tough bottom ends (can save for stock, or discard). Place the asparagus in a pan (to contain the spears while you put them on and take them off the grill). Coat them with olive oil and sprinkle salt over them.
3 Grill the asparagus spears for 5-10 minutes, until nicely charred and just fork tender, turning them every few minutes so that they brown relatively evenly.
Remove from grill and serve.
