Grilled Asparagus

grilled asparagus recipe


I love trying new recipes for any type of vegetable but especially asparagus!

While I usually enjoy thinner asparagus stalks, you will want to use thicker asparagus in order for them to hold on the skewers. Marinate the asparagus in a mixture of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic powder, kosher salt, and pepper for about 15 minutes before grilling. Then skewer the asparagus and grill for 3 minutes on each side.

Don't forget to soak the skewers for 20 minutes in water before grilling so the skewers do not burn!
