Grilled Asparagus - Farm Girl Fresh

Grilled Asparagus

15 June, 2017 / by Joyce and Colleen

It’s almost Father’s Day, and that means celebrating dad and grilling at our house (my husband does the grilling – thanks grill master). Since we will be loading up the grill with burgers, chicken, or chops, we might as well prepare our side dish on the grill, too. And with asparagus in season here in Minnesota, this Grilled Asparagus is the perfect side dish. It’s super simple!

And dads, whether you are the “grill master,” the “dish washer,” the “diaper changer,” the “quarterback,” or “engineer,” your children love you and look up to you! Happy Father’s Day.

2 tablespoons sesame oil
2 pounds asparagus, trimmed
Salt to taste
Preheat grill. Trim woody ends of asparagus where stem naturally breaks. Lightly coat asparagus with oil; season to taste with salt.
Grill 3 to 5 minutes over medium heat, covered, turning several times until browned and tender. A grill basket or bamboo skewers (soaked in water for one hour) works great!
