3 Easy-Peasy Grilled Asparagus Recipes
Fresh From Your Local Farm.
The best asparagus for grilling is about the size of your index finger. Set your barbecue at high and don't start grilling until it's hot. If grilling meat, wait until it's finished before grilling asparagus. Before placing on the grill, coat asparagus generously with extra virgin olive oil. Place on the grill and cook about 4 minutes then flip and cook another 2-4 minutes.
DOUBLE LEMON GRILLED ASPARAGUS WITH SHAVED PARMESAN
Parmesan, olive oil and lemon marry wonderfully with fresh asparagus. In a bowl, whisk 3 parts Lemon olive oil with 1 part Sicilian Lemon balsamic. Tip: Add balsamic to oil -- not the other way around -- to ensure perfect emulsion. Set aside. Season grilled asparagus with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Pour oil and balsamic mixture over asparagus. Take a block of Parmesan to the table and shave over the asparagus. You can use a peeler to have a lovely shave of Parmesan.
BALSAMIC GRILLED ASPARAGUS WITH GARLIC
This is another very easy way to add a gourmet twist to fresh asparagus. In a bowl add 2 parts Garlic olive oil and 1 part 18-year-old Aged Traditional dark balsamic vinegar. Whisk and put to the side until your asparagus is grilled. Before serving add sea salt and pepper to taste then pour mixture over platter of asparagus. Drizzle additional dark balsamic and garlic oil as you wish.
CHILI-ORANGE GRILLED ASPARAGUS
The combination of chili and orange zest adds extra sizzle to fresh asparagus. Our Tunisian Blood Orange olive oil is made by pressing olives with newly harvested oranges. Our Cayenne olive oil is made with fresh red chili peppers pressed with fresh, certified organic early harvest olives. In a bowl add equal parts Cayenne and Blood Orange olive oil. Whisk until blended. Season grilled asparagus with salt to taste, then drizzle the chili-orange mixture generously. Have some Cayenne oil on hand for those who love extra heat.
