Ingredients

  • 2 bunches fresh asparagus about 48 spears
  • 1 T extra virgin olive oil
  • S&P to taste
  • 1 clove fresh garlic minced
  • 1 T Balsamic Vinegar optional

Instructions

  • Preheat gas or charcoal grill to around 400 degrees.
  • Trim asparagus of woody ends and toss with oil, garlic and seasonings.
  • Place asaragus on hot grill and grill for about 3 to 5 minutes on each side.  Use large tongs to carefully turn asparagus over.
  • Serve immediately.

Notes

One way to grill asparagus easily is to use skewers.  Lay several spears of seasoned asparagus on a flat surface and thread skewer through spears.  One skewer near the top portion and one skewer near the bottom.  This makes for easier flipping.
You may also roast the asparagus in the oven:  Place seasoned asparagus on a large baking sheet and bake in a 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes. Halfway through, toss asparagus around lightly to prevent burning.
