Asparagus is one of our favorite vegetables to have with dinner. We like to make it a lot when we have pork. We usually steam the asparagus, but one of my husband's co-workers told us that it was good grilled. I don't know if I was the only one in the dark about this, but I never knew that asparagus could be grilled.
This is a great grilling recipe for summer. This recipe is so easy and makes a healthy and tasty side dish. I really like the grilled asparagus, it had so much flavor and a great texture. This is a great side dish that we will definitely be making again.
(Recipe from Food.com)
2 tablespoons olive oil
2-3 pinches of salt
1/4 cup parmesan cheese (optional topping)
1. To break the end off the asparagus, break it gently in half until it snaps. Place the asparagus on a plate and drizzle with the olive oil. Sprinkle with the salt and then mix the asparagus with your hands to coat with the olive oil and salt.
2. Place the asparagus horizontally on a grill on medium heat. Occasionally roll the spears with a spatula so they rotate and cook on each side.
3. The asparagus will be begin to brown in spots, but should not blacken or char. The asparagus is done when they are slightly wilted.
4. Remove from the grill. If desired, sprinkle with the parmesan cheese.
