Learn how to grill asparagus perfectly every time! For an extra boost of flavor, grill lemon halves along with the veggies. When you eat, serve the grilled asparagus with a squeeze of charred lemon juice!
woody ends trimmed
Extra-virgin olive oil
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
optional, for squeezing
Preheat a grill to medium-high heat.
Toss the asparagus spears with olive oil, salt, and pepper, and grill for 6 to 8 minutes, or until charred but still bright green, flipping or rolling once.
Squeeze with lemon, or drizzle with lemon vinaigrette, and serve.
Note: I grill lemon halves cut-side down until heated through and charred, about 3 minutes. Use the charred lemons for squeezing unless you're serving the asparagus with Lemon Vinaigrette.
