Asparagus season is in full swing! Fresh local asparagus on the grill is something I look forward to every spring. When the asparagus arrives it means it is just the beginning of all the amazing fresh, local vegetables that I love so much. The farmers markets are opening for the season, which means for the next four months there will be nothing but fresh, delicious and nutritious vegetables to cook with. Welcome spring! Welcome asparagus! Welcome delicious summer meals!
2 dozen asparagus, washed and ends broken off
1 red pepper, julienne
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 lemon, juiced
salt & pepper
Heat the grill to medium high.
Toss the asparagus and red pepper in the olive oil, lemon and salt & pepper. Place directly on the grill.
Grill for about 10 minutes or until starting to blacken.
