This is the easiest Grilled Asparagus Spears recipe on the planet! And they cook up beautifully, especially when grilled.
- 1 pound fresh asparagus spears
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- Salt & pepper
- 1 teaspoon lemon zest
- Trim the rough ends off of the asparagus spears (about 2/3 from bottom) and discard. Toss the asparagus with the olive oil, and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper.
- Heat a grill pan on medium-high until slightly smoking. Add the spears in a single layer and grill evenly on both sides, tossing frequently until just wilted, about 5-8 minutes. Sprinkle with lemon zest to finish.
