Grilled Asparagus

Have you tried grilled asparagus yet?  Grilled is my absolute favorite way to eat asparagus.  The grilling process cooks the asparagus very quickly (in the time that most meat needs to rest before consuming) and adds this amazing bit of char that is just perfect.  The asparagus is dressed very simply in a drizzle of olive oil, salt & pepper, proving again that sometimes the simplest things are the best.

Grilled Asparagus
Adapted slightly from Simply Recipes

1 lb asparagus, ends removed
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Salt & pepper

Preheat the grill to medium-high.

Place the asparagus into a bowl or pan and drizzle with olive oil.  Add the salt and pepper and toss to coat.

Place the asparagus directly onto the grill grates taking care to place the spears perpendicular to the grates so it doesn’t fall through.  Rotate the asparagus spears every couple minutes for 5-10 minutes or until the asparagus is lightly charred and tender.
