I made these last night. After reading a LOT of other member comments, I decided to marinate in EV olive oil, coarsley-ground pepper, kosher salt (only a bit of salt), minced garlic and a bit of balsamic vinegar, for about 2 hours. Threaded on to bamboo skewers and grilled on the barbecue at a medium heat setting for a total of about 5-6 minutes. Absolutely to DIE for! THE BEST asparagus I've ever eaten. My guest raved about them long after the meal was over. Served with peppercorn-encusted strip loin steak, greek lemon pototoes and grilled red and orange peppers.-13 Apr 2008


This is so great, we are big asparagus fans and this is one of our favorite ways to eat it. I just learned a little trick in a magazine and it works fantastic for this recipe. Soak some wooden skewers in water and then skewer together 6 or 7 stalks of asparagus all in a row like a little fence, using two skewers, one at the top one at the bottom. They wont fall through the grate on the grill that way and they are easy to flip.-26 May 2004

The simpler the better & you can't get much simpler or better than this. In a ziploc I placed the trimmed asparagus & then added some fine extra virgin olive oil, salt & pepper & placed these babies on a jelly roll sheet in a 475 oven for 8-10 minutes, shaking them around after 5 minutes. Once out of oven, I add either lemon juice or some grated best quality parmesan cheese. YUMMY to say the least!-12 Mar 2003

So easy and quick recipe! Makes a great side. I made this for a quick side with lobster for a memorial weekend. Everyone loved it!! My guest ate asparagus more than lobster. Lol This is going to be my regular recipe. -)

Great for appetizers, especially as main course is grilling. After grilling, sprinkle some seasame seeds to enhance.

This is the only way my family will eat asparagus. wonderful! Sprinkle well with pepper (especially) and salt.

A very simple and delicious way to prepare asparagus. Use the top rack of your BBQ and watch carefully. I usually brush with a bit of melted butter to finish.

I agree, a good quality, fruity olive oil greatly improves the taste. After drizzling the olive oil on the asparagus I also add some chopped garlic before grilling. This is one of our favorite ways to eat asparagus!

This recipe can be inproved upon by using a fruity olive oil instead of the spray. Also, a squeeze of fresh lemon juice after grilling adds to the dish.

Grilled Asparagus Recipe

My favorite vegetable side dish with steaks I've cooked over charcoal is grilled asparagus spears. I came across this delacasy several years ago on board a British Airways flight from chicago to London. I was sitting in Business class, lucky me, and they served a delicious meal consisting of filet mignon, grilled asparagus and green salad.

I sampled the grilled spears and, wow!, were they ever tasty. I asked the stewardess how the asparagus was prepared and she explained how the spears were simply grilled over a hot fire. I cannot believe I had missed out on this healthful and tasty treat all those years.

Now, no steak is ever cooked on my grill unless acompanied by a generous amount of grilled asparagus spears on the side. Below is my favorite way to grill asparagus spears when I barbecue.

Grilled Asparagus

1 pound asparagus spears
1 cup olive oil
garlic salt

Rinse asparagus spears and snap off the root ends of the spears. Generously coat spears with olive oil. I use a deep platter for this. Remove asparagus and sprinkle with garlic salt and pepper to taste. Place over hot grill and cook each side approximately 3 minutes or so. Don't overcook. Spears will turn a dull green when overcooked, they should be hot but still crunchy.

Yes! You can lay a piece of aluminum foil onto the grill grates to prevent the asparagus from falling through and cook directly on the foil. Or, if you want a steamed effect, you can wrap your asparagus in foil to form a foil packet.

To make asparagus crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, grill over a high heat, directly on grill grates. Direct heat will crisp up the asparagus on the outside.

  • 2 pounds/900 g. asparagus spears
  • 14 to 16 slices of prosciutto
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1/2 cup/120 mL​ olive oil

Preheat grill for medium-high heat.

Trim ends off tough ends from asparagus. Cut prosciutto slices into strips. Wrap half of one slice onto each asparagus spear.

Combine minced garlic with olive oil and brush each spear with the mixture. The seasoned and wrapped spears with black pepper and place onto grill. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes, turning occasionally. Keep a close eye on these as the prosciutto is paper thin and prone to burning. Once cooked through, remove asparagus from heat and serve.
