Grilled Asparagus

Grilled Asparagus

Ready in 25 minutes

We live in what some would consider traditional asparagus country. The river valley has deep historical roots of some of the finest asparagus in the world. Or at least before disease took it's toll on the roots years ago. But, when the green spears appear ever year, we flock to the little roadside stands once or twice a week while it's in season to take advantage of this treasure since it's recovery. Here is just one way we like to cook it.

"This is exactly how I do it!! Wouldn't change a thing!! However, I have noticed the slightly thicker spears, which we all tend to avoid for most recipes, are actually better for grilling."

Great recipe! It's worked out twice for me - once on top of the stove in a skillet, and the second time in the oven using my grill pan and press.

Soo yummy! A little bit of garlic powder sprinkled on as well as the salt/pepper is very tasty on these.
