Making Grilled Asparagus

Updated: May 19, 2023

In this post, I show you how simple it is to make grilled asparagus.


If you have been following me for a while, you know I love any recipe or cooking method that can be altered to create different versions of the same basic dish or that can be used with different ingredients to create a different meal. I love variety when it's easy to accomplish.


The Basic Recipe

Ingredients

· 1 bunch of Asparagus, woody ends trimmed

· Olive Oil

· Garlic Powder and Salt

· Dill and/or Parsley

· Lemon Wedge

· Grated Parmesan


Preparation

  1. Heat the grill pan. Preheat the grill pan so it is sizzling hot.

  2. Prep the asparagus. Trim the asparagus. Coat with a drizzle of olive oil and flavor with a sprinkle of garlic powder (1/2 tsp) and salt (1/4 tsp). With your hands, rub the asparagus to evenly distribute oil and flavoring.

  3. Grill it. Place the asparagus on the grill in a single layer. Allow to cook for a few minutes and then turn to cook the other side. Cook until just tender.

  4. Serve. Perfect for a healthy snack or a side dish for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner.
