Grilled Asparagus With Garlic

 

1 lb large asparagus, woody ends trimmed
3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
3/4 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 tsp minced garlic

 

Heat grill to medium.

In a shallow baking dish, toss the asparagus with the oil to coat well.  Add the salt and pepper, and toss to coat evenly.

Place the asparagus on the grill in a single layer (preferably in a grill basket), and cook, turning occasionally, until the spears are marked and tender, 12 to 15 minutes.

Transfer the asparagus to a platter, sprinkle with the lemon juice and garlic, and toss to combine.  cover with aluminum foil and let sit for 5 minutes before serving.

(4 servings)
