  • 1 pound asparagus choose medium sized shoots, they hold up better on the grill
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1 medium lemon zest and juice
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil


  • Preheat. Preheat your grill to High (about 400 degrees F)
  • Trim. Wash the asparagus well and then trim the woody, tough ends off of the asparagus and lay them out in a single row on a baking sheet or cutting board.
    1 pound asparagus
  • Season. Drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and sprinkle with lemon zest, juice, and garlic. Roll around gently on the pan to ensure the asparagus are all evenly covered.

  • Grill. Place the asparagus directly on the grill and roast the asparagus for 8-10 minutes, or until the ends have just started to brown and the shoots are still crisp-tender.
  • Serve. Remove the asparagus from the grill to a serving platter. Serve warm or chilled with an extra drizzle of fresh lemon, if desired.
