Ingredients

1 pound large asparagus, woody ends trimmed*

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling

3/4 teaspoon coarse salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

Directions

Preheat the grill to medium.

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

Place the asparagus on the grill in a single layer, and cook, turning, until marked and tender, about 12 to 15 minutes. Transfer to a platter, sprinkle with the lemon juice and drizzle with olive oil, to taste. Cover with aluminum foil and let sit for 5 minutes before serving.

Cook’s Note

Large asparagus can be placed directly on the grill; smaller ones may fall through during cooking. If cooking thin asparagus, use a grill basket.
