Quick side dish for those hectic cookouts when you’re running short on time and long on hungry guests.
Simple Grilled Asparagus
- 1 lb. fresh asparagus spears
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
- garlic salt and freshly ground black pepper
How to make it
Clip off the tough, light-colored ends of the asparagus stalks.
Lace the olive oil over the stack of asparagus spears.
Apply garlic salt and cracked pepper on top.
Lay obliquely across pre-heated grill, rolling them as score lines appear.
Cook to desired tenderness (a few minutes) and serve immediately.
To allow room on the grill for other items, collect the asparagus, after they have score-lines, and lay aside in a sheet of foil to the side of the hot portions of the grill until ready to serve.
