"Delicious crispy asparagus grilled on an open flame releases the flavor and makes kids love their veggies! You can add or reduce cook time to your liking. Less time will make the asparagus snap more easily, but cooking longer will make them extra crispy and delicious for dipping. Use 1/2 cup melted butter for dipping." — heather_banzhaf

fresh asparagus, trimmed
grated Parmesan cheese, or to taste
salt to taste
Very tasty. I had really thin spears of asparagus so they cooked in about ten minutes. I used a grill topper so I wouldn't loose any spears to the BBQ.
This is a nice, simple recipe, but the recommended cooking time of 20 minutes is at least twice as long as it needs. With a hot fire this shouldn't take any longer than five minutes. Asparagus should be cooked quickly to retain its sweetness and tenderness. Cooked too long and it becomes bitter and stringy.
Used Pecorino Romano cheese....added no extra salt....but added some fresh cracked pepper....delicious on the grill....thanks!
Fast and easy to prepare. All you need is asparagus as you most likely have all the other ingredients in the pantry.
This asparagus was delicious! I made a 1/2 recipe and got 2 servings, so the serving amount is right on. I used a good brand of ground parmesan cheese. I definitely recommend the fine ground after trying it. It just sticks better to foods. I ended up just using 3 good sized Tblsp of parmesan cheese for half the recipe or about 1/4 less and they were plenty coated. I also highly highly recommend using the larger asparagus, which many wholesale clubs sale, that are about 1/2" or larger. They stay slightly soft still after grilling and aren't so woody. I will definitely throw these on the grill again for a quick side dish. Thank you
Very easy to prepare and great flavor. I also really appreciate using the grill as much as possible in the summer to avoid heating up my house by using the stove. I didn't use quite as much olive oil as the recipe stated - just enough of a drizzle to lightly coat the asparagus.
After using this recipe, I actually realized just how good asparagus can be. This recipe is perfect for great tasting asparagus. Since grilling it for the first time two weeks ago, we have used it 3 times so far.
