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!


  • 1 bunch asparagus, woody ends trimmed
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Lemon wedges*, optional, for squeezing
  • Lemon Vinaigrette, optional


  • 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.
