Grilled Asparagus

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 4


  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • 2 tablespoons more or less olive oil
  • 1 or 2 cloves minced garlic optional
  • salt
  • pepper


  1. Remove the woody ends of the asparagus spears.
  2. Place spears into a grill basket or alternately, use some skewers if your racks are spaced too far apart. (But really, a grill basket is AWESOME, and totally worth the investment of a around $10).
  3. Toss with the olive oil to be sure all spears are evenly coated, and sprinkle with garlic, salt, and pepper to taste.
  4. Place on a preheated hot grill, lid down.
  5. In about 2-3 minutes, move the spears around or flip them, and in another 1-3 minutes, your spear should be crisp tender.
  6. Serve with a squeeze of lemon juice and possible some parmesan shreds if you can do dairy....delicious!
