  • 1 pound fresh asparagus
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ to 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper


  • Preheat an outdoor grill to high heat, about 450 degrees F.
  • Trim ends from asparagus by snapping off the ends, or cutting with a knife.
  • Place trimmed asparagus into a large mixing bowl or large gallon sized resealable plastic bag. Add in olive oil, salt, and pepper, and toss to combine until asparagus is lightly and evenly coated.
  • Place asparagus directly onto the grill, perpendicular to the grill grates so they don't fall through. Grill over high heat, with the lid closed, for 10 minutes, flipping halfway through.
  • Serve hot.
