Ingredients

  • 1 pound fresh asparagus spears
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat grill to 425 F.
  • Trim off the woody ends of the asparagus and place the spears into a bowl or dish large enough that they can lay flat.
  • Drizzle with olive oil and season to taste with Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper. Toss to coat.
  • Add the asparagus to the grill. You should hear a sizzle when the oiled spears hit the grates. Grill for 3-4 minutes per side.

Notes

I have found that the perfect grilling temperature for this veggie is just below high. Once I pull the meat off the grill I adjust the temp and let it heat up. Closing the grill can speed up this process.
