How to Grill Asparagus



  • 1 bunch of fresh asparagus
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper


  1. Heat grill to 450.
  2. Take asparagus an 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.
  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.
  5. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  6. 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, using a tongs to move the asparagus around once or twice so all sides cook.
  7. Remove and serve immediately.


  • To store, place in airtight container and keep in the refrigerator for 3-5 days.
