How to Make BBQ Asparagus with Parmesan and Lemon Zest

Step-by-Step

  • 1Wash asparagus and snap off the bottom of the stalks
  • 2Place damp asparagus onto a piece of heavy duty foil - shiny side up - large enough to leave 2-3 inches of clear foil on either side and 4-5 inches top and bottom of the asparagus
  • 3drizzle olive oil over asparagus and toss to coat
  • 4sprinkle with Parmesan, lemon zest (or juice), pepper, and salt, toss to coat
  • 5Bring the top and bottom edges of the foil together and fold over several times, leaving some air space between vegetables and foil.
  • 6Repeat with each side of your foil package until a sealed pouch is formed
  • 7Cook pouch indirectly on the BBQ - meaning on an upper rack, over a non-burning element, or to the side of your burning charcoal - for about 14 mins, flip the pouch over after 7 mins. Total cooking time will vary with heat level of BBQ/fire mins
  • 8When vegetables are cooked, the pouch will swell up with steam. Note - this will only work if your pouch is well sealed and you haven't accidentally poked a hole in it during handling.
  • 9Open foil pouch and serve. Watch out for the steam when you first tear the foil - especially if the pouch is puffed up!
    Enjoy!
