See that wasted space on your grill, next to the burgers? That's where your asparagus goes. Put these babies on when the burgers are half done, and everything will be ready at the same time.
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 5-8 minutes
Serves: 2-4 as a side dish
1 bunch fresh asparagus (about 1 1/2 lbs), rinsed, woody section of the stem snapped off.
3 TB Olive Oil
Salt to taste
Preheat your grill. Place your asparagus spears in a baking dish, drizzle with the olive oil, and turn to coat. Arrange the asparagus in a single layer across the grill (so no precious spears are lost into the flame). Cook for about 3 minutes, turn, and cook for another 3 minutes. (Grill heat varies widely so watch your asparagus closely). Place spears on a serving platter and drizzle with any remaining oil from the baking dish. Season to taste with salt.
