Grilled Asparagus – a simple, step-by-step tutorial on how to grill asparagus perfectly every time! A super easy side dish recipe!


  • 1 bunch of fresh asparagus
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • kosher salt
  • ground black pepper


  1. Clean grill grates and preheat the grill to 450 degrees F.
  2. Take asparagus and gently bend each one toward the white end; the asparagus will naturally snap in half where the tough part (that is too tough to eat) meets the tender part.  Alternative: you can trim off the bottom inch or two with a sharp knife.
  3. Place asparagus on baking sheet and drizzle with some olive oil.
  4. Use your hands to massage oil into the asparagus so each piece is lightly coated and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  5. Place asparagus perpendicular to the grill grates so they don’t fall through and cook on direct heat for a total of 5-6 minutes, use tongs to move the asparagus around once or twice so all sides cook.
  6. Remove and serve immediately.


  • Storage: place in an airtight container and keep in the refrigerator for 3-5 days.
