Am giving your tasty recipe a four star rating. Would have given it a five had you punched up the flavor by marinating the asparagus first. To marinate: Place the asparagus in a shallow baking dish triple the lemon juice and olive oil drizzle over the asparagus and marinate at room temperature for one hour turning about three or four times. Then drain off the marinade and toss with the parmesan to coat. Be sure to use fresh Parmesan instead of the jarred type that has added salt and chemicals to keep it from lumping during storage. If your grill doesn't have a grill plate use two bamboo skewers instead of one to thread asparagus spears for easy turning and to help keep the asparagus from slipping through the bars. Heck whether you have a grill plate or not use the skewers for easy turning;-) If you're a garlic and lemon flavor lover add one teaspoon of minced garlic to the lemon and oil marinade. Read More

Nice easy - fast recipe. We love grilled asparagus. I like garlic but not everyone does. I used a grill topper so the asparagus didn't fall through the grates. This is a great spring treat. Read More

This an excellent way to cook veggies. I do it in the oven on a sheet pan lined with foil under the broiler. It works with Asparagus Cauliflower Broccoli Brussel sprouts Potatoes etc. This is a basic procedure in my kitchen. I use this for stews soups and pasta sauces. It adds a wonderful flavor to any dish or just by itself as a side dish. Try it you'll like it! Read More

I make asparagus on the grill often but I've never cooked it directly on the grate. This was fun to make! After coating them with the olive oil and lemon juice I seasoned them with fresh cracked pepper and smoked sea salt. I turned them as they cooked and I liked the appealing charred look they took on while still maintaining their crisp/tender texture. I don't care for Parmesan on asparagus myself so I didn't taste this - but judging by Mrs. Spunky's dinner plate this must have been pretty good. Read More

This recipe is similar to how I always make my roasted asparagus. I always wait to add the parmesan cheese at the end when they are done along with some more lemon juice drizzled over! Also while roasting or grilling add in some chopped garlic yumm. Read More

I had never made grilled asparagus. I made this recipe exactly as written. Grilling asparagus gives it a different taste. We enjoyed it very much but I felt that something was missing. Next time I will put some garlic on it being careful not to burn it and making it bitter. Thanks for the recipe. Read More
