Grilled Asparagus

Tender stalks of perfectly grilled asparagus dotted with flame-kissed marks of char is certainly one of the most tantalizing cookout side dishes of all time.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound fresh Asparagus
  • 2 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper to taste (or your favorite seasonings)

Instructions

  • Trim the woody ends off the asparagus stalks.
  • On a large pan, drizzle oil, salt, and pepper over the asparagus stalks and toss to evenly coat. 
  • Pierce the asparagus in a line with 2 skewers. This makes them more stable on the grill so they can be easily flipped without falling through the grates.
  • Place them on grill grates directly over charcoal, or high heat on gas grill. Let grill for 1-2 minutes per side, or until tender and char marks begin to form.

Notes

Feel free to get creative with your flavorings, for example, Old Bay Seasoning or  Balsamic Vinegar are also great to sprinkle on your asparagus before grilling.
 
Grilled Asparagus is the perfect side dish to serve with a grilled steak. Check out my How to Grill Steak write-up too!
