This is the way we prepared our asparagus this past weekend for Father's Day. My sis prepped it and I grilled it. It was very good; even the kids (the KIDS!) loved it.

You will know the asparagus is done when the bushy tops turn just the littlest shade of brown. The asparagus should be soft with a little crunch on the inside.

Ingredients

  • ·
    a bunch of raw asparagus (big handful of about 12-15 stalks)
  • 1/2 c
    olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp
    salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp
    garlic powder
  • 1 tsp
    pepper

How to Make Grilled Garlic Asparagus

Step-by-Step

  1. Wash asparagus and cut off a little of the bottom end to discard. Pat dry.
  2. In a plastic container that has a tight lid to it (or a clean, dry plastic water bottle with cap), combine the olive oil, salt, garlic and pepper. Cover and shake until combined.
  3. Before olive oil mixture settles, quickly pour over the asparagus. Turn asparagus to make sure it is all coated in the oil. You may not have to use all the olive oil; don't drown the asparagus in it. Just enough to coat. Too much soaking and the dripping asparagus oil will cause flames on your gas grill to shoot up and burn the asparagus.
  4. (If you don't use the olive oil, save it to the side and use it as part of a dressing for a salad, or topping for making garlic bread...)
  5. Wait about 5 minutes, then take asparagus out of the olive oil and onto a paper towel-lined plate to soak up excess. Using tongs, arrange asparagus on grill across grates (so it doesn't fall through).
  6. Close grill and let asparagus cook for 5 minutes, turning them once about halfway through.

Guacamole and chips just taste a little better with a margarita. Sitting on the back patio on a warm day is a tad more relaxing sipping on a frozen margarita. They are traditionally made with tequila, triple sec, and lime juice. One reason we love margaritas, though, is you can adjust ingredients to suit your […]
