So, asparagus are going to be out of season in another month. I wanted to give you one last recipe idea for eating the most delicious asparagus I have ever had. My Mom had this great idea to grill the asparagus (I could care less I told her, but she was right–grilled asparagus are ten times better than cooked any other way).
Grilled Asparagus Recipe
1 Large Bunch Asparagus
1 Tbsp. Balsamic Vinegar
2 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 Tbsp. Fresh Chopped Parsley
2 tsp. Garlic Powder
Juice of 1 Lemon, and 1 additional for slicing
Salt and Pepper
1. Start the grill to warm it up. In a zip-top bag, throw in all the ingredients with the asparagus, and coat well.
2. Using a grill rack (see below), place asparagus in grill rack on grill after you have let any oil/juices drip off a little.
3. Stir occasionally while grilling (total cook time is about 10-14 minutes). Asparagus are done when they have slightly darkened in color, and you can pierce them with a fork.
4. On a serving plate, drizzle additional olive oil, lemon juice, place lemon slices on the plate, parsley, and salt/pepper. Place grilled asparagus on dressed serving plate and enjoy!
