Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 1 lb asparagus
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest, about 1 medium lemon
  • ¼ cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
Instructions
  1. Preheat the grill over direct medium heat until the grill reaches about 350-450 degrees.
  2. Using a sharp knife, trim the tough bottoms off of the asparagus spears - roughly the bottom ⅓.
  3. Place the asparagus on a plate and drizzle with the olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, tossing to make sure the asparagus is evenly coated.
  4. Meanwhile, in a separate bowl stir together the garlic, lemon zest and parsley until well combined.
  5. Once the grill is preheated, brush the cooking grates clean. Place the asparagus on the grill (perpendicular to the grates so the asparagus doesn't fall through) and close the lid. Grill the asparagus for 6-8 minutes, turning occasionally, until lightly charred and crisp tender.
  6. Remove the asparagus from the grill and top with the gremolata. Serve warm or at room temperature.
