Melissa's Cuisine: Grillin' Season! -- Grilled Asparagus

Grillin' Season! -- Grilled Asparagus

It's summer!  And to me, summer just screams grilling season!  I love cooking outdoors and enjoying a delicious meal hot off the grill.  Over the next couple days, I'll share a few of my favorite grilling recipes.  This first one is something new to me, I've only had asparagus once before this meal and I thought it was delicious. When I saw fresh asparagus at the farmer's market, I just couldn't resist!

I don't have exact measurements for this recipe as you can adapt it to meet your needs for the amount of asparagus you have.

You will need:
Asparagus (I used 1 pound)
Olive oil
Garlic powder

1.  Wash asparagus and cut off the tough ends.

2.  Place on a cookie sheet and drizzle with olive oil.  Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and a small amount of garlic powder.

3.  Using your hands, roll the asparagus on the pan to make sure it's completely covered in oil and seasonings.

4.  Place a sheet of aluminum foil on your grill (You can skip this, but I used the foil to keep the asparagus from falling into my grill!) and place asparagus on the foil.

5.  Grill over medium-high heat for about 8 minutes, turning every 2 minutes until asparagus is cooked.  I like mine with a bit of a crunch.  Serve hot.

  1. I didn't like asparagus as a kid and haven't had it since. Cheri was just telling me that she now loves it and I should try it again. This would be a good way to do that!

  2. Looks delicious! Never tried asparagus on the grill - thanks for the idea : )

  3. I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your website?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
    connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of
    text for only having 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?
