Grilled Lemon Garlic Asparagus Recipe
Easy and delicious asparagus recipe!
Spring is the best time of the year for asparagus and I intend to fully enjoy it! I recently discovered that I love grilling asparagus – it is fast, easy, and delicious. You can grill it to tender-crisp perfection!
The first step is to rinse the asparagus and trim off the bottom ends. Then roll them around in some olive oil, salt, and pepper. That’s basically it for prep – they are ready for the grill!
I grill the asparagus over a medium high heat on a grill pan. While it is quite handy, the grill pan isn’t necessary. You can place the asparagus directly on the grill grates, if you’re very careful, or on a grill mat. Another option is an asparagus “raft.” Insert a couple of skewers or toothpicks crosswise through some of the asparagus, leaving a small space between each. The idea is that they are connected to each other so it is less likely for them to fall through the grill grates.
Anyway, once they are cooked to a nice tender-crisp, you remove them from the grill and add some more flavor! I really like this garlic, lemon, and Parmesan combo. You can use the store-bought grated Parmesan, that is more like a powder, or freshly grated Parmesan. Either is delicious!
