  • 1 pound asparagus
  • 1-2 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Wash and dry the asparagus.  Trim any woody stalks at the bottom if having purchased from the store.

  2. Heat a grill to medium heat.
  3. Brush asparagus with the olive oil on both sides.  Salt and pepper liberally.  Place on the grill for about 2 minutes a side (enough to form grill marks and for it to being to soften without becoming limp).  Enjoy immediately!
