  • How to Grill Asparagus

    In a blender or food processor, add the minced olive oil, balsamic vinegar, minced garlic, salt and pepper. Pulse at least 10 seconds to thoroughly combine your marinade.

    Place the marinade and asparagus in a large resealable plastic bag. Seal and shake to coat evenly. Reopen, remove excess air, reseal and allow to marinate at least 1 hour.

    Preheat grill for high heat (at least 500 degrees F). Your grill is ready when you can only place the palm of your hand, two inches above the grate, for about one second before pulling away.

    Using two skewers, one at the top and one at the bottom, skewer 6 asparagus at a time (it should look like a little fence). This arrangement makes them easy to turn on the grill and they won’t slip through the grate.

    Lightly oil grate and grill asparagus over high heat 6 minutes (or to desired doneness), turning once midway. Serve warm.
