Last night we tried grilled asparagus.
I may be late to the party because apparently this is a really common item to be grilled, but y’all, it was SO GOOD! And so easy!
So if you’ve known how to make grilled asparagus for ages, please skip over this post. If you might be out there like me and relatively new to the world of asparagus, read on.
My husband brought home a bundle of asparagus from the store this week and I was excited to make our Bacon Wrapped Asparagus recipe. However, I soon realized that we were out of bacon, so had to come up with another plan.
He was grilling some salmon and chicken already, so we decided to just grill the asparagus also.
1 bunch asparagus (washed and hard, woody bottom part snapped off)
1 TB Lemon Juice
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp onion powder
1 TB Olive Oil
1/4 tsp black pepper
Mix all ingredients and put with the asparagus in a ziplock baggie. I let mine marinate around 30 minutes, but you don’t have to do it for that long if you’re running short on time.
Grill in basket if you’ve got one, or you can grill in a cast iron skillet or on the grill racks if you can do so without it falling through. Ours cooked for about 10 minutes and was crisp tender perfect!
My amazing neighbor told me that she’s been making asparagus this way for a long time and that it’s really good to put some grated Parmesan on it after you finish grilling it.
Try it and let me know what y’all think!
