Here is a great way to "spring up" your cuisine. Asparagus is a great side on it's own, or it is a great addition to any pasta. The possibilities are truly endless. This is my favorite way to prepare them for whatever it may be that I am doing with them. May it be for a recipe that calls for cooked asparagus, or to accompany some salmon. No matter what I always grill mine just like this.
1 bundle of fresh asparagus spears (rinsed/ dried)
extra virgin olive oil
sea salt/ fresh cracked pepper
-Preheat grill to a medium heat. Meanwhile, holding the center and the cut end of the asparagus, bend to snap off dried-out end (it will naturally break at this point); discard ends. Create a make-shift pan out of aluminum foil and evenly spread out spears. Drizzle with e.v.o. and heavily season with salt/ pepper. Roll them around to evenly coat, returning them to an even spread. Grill on the top rack for about 20 minutes, while occasionally rolling them around for even cooking. Serves 4-6. Enjoy!
