Am giving your tasty recipe a four star rating. Would have given it a five had you punched up the flavor by marinating the asparagus first.
To marinate: Place the asparagus in a shallow baking dish, triple the lemon juice and olive oil, drizzle over the asparagus and marinate at room temperature for one hour, turning about three or four times. Then drain off the marinade and toss with the parmesan to coat. Be sure to use fresh Parmesan instead of the jarred type that has added salt and chemicals to keep it from lumping during storage.
If your grill doesn't have a grill plate use two bamboo skewers instead of one to thread asparagus spears for easy turning and to help keep the asparagus from slipping through the bars. Heck, whether you have a grill plate or not use the skewers for easy turning ;-)
If you're a garlic and lemon flavor lover add one teaspoon of minced garlic to the lemon and oil marinade.
Nice easy - fast recipe. We love grilled asparagus. I like garlic but not everyone does. I used a grill topper so the asparagus didn't fall through the grates . This is a great spring treat.
add crumbled bacon and it is awesome
I make asparagus on the grill often but I've never cooked it directly on the grate. This was fun to make! After coating them with the olive oil and lemon juice I seasoned them with fresh cracked pepper and smoked sea salt. I turned them as they cooked and I liked the appealing charred look they took on, while still maintaining their crisp/tender texture. I don't care for Parmesan on asparagus myself, so I didn't taste this - but judging by Mrs. Spunky's dinner plate this must have been pretty good.
This recipe is similar to how I always make my roasted asparagus. I always wait to add the parmesan cheese at the end when they are done along with some more lemon juice drizzled over! Also while roasting or grilling, add in some chopped garlic, yumm.
This an excellent way to cook veggies. I do it in the oven on a sheet pan lined with foil under the broiler. It works with Asparagus, Cauliflower, Broccoli, Brussel sprouts, Potatoes, etc. This is a basic procedure in my kitchen. I use this for stews, soups and pasta sauces. It adds a wonderful flavor to any dish or just by itself as a side dish. Try it you'll like it!
I broiled it in the oven for 4 minutes. Came out done but still crispy. Very good.
This is a really good asparagus recipe, and it didn't take too long to make, either. It is very tangy and delicious. I think we would definitely make this again! Thanks for the recipe!
