Several summers ago when we built our house I learned to cook on the grill. I figured out how to cook a great many things on the grill that weren't what we would normally think of. Pizza, brownies, you name it, I probably tried it.
One of our family favorites that we adopted that summer is grilled asparagus. Since then, I've seen recipes listed places, but I promise, this version, was my own! LOL....And since asparagus is one of the few green things my family will eat, whenever it is on sale, I buy some.
1 lb fresh asparagus
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp crushed garlic paste (what you would find in the fresh produce section)
Put asparagus in a gallon sized zipper bag. Add 1 Tbsp olive oil, 1/2 tsp salt and 1 tsp garlic. Squish bag all around until even covered.
Preheat grill. Lay asparagus ACROSS grill (if you lay it length wise, it will fall through the grill - trust me - I learned the hardway). On low heat, grill for about 2 minutes. Rotate. Grill another 2 minutes.
When asparagus is slightly showing char (about 4 minutes), turn off burner and close lid. Let sit about 5 minutes to soften more (if you have thick stalks, it might need a bit more, thin stalks a bit less).
