  • 1 pound asparagus medium to large thickness
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • Lemon wedges for serving


  • Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
  • Remove the bottom thick woody ends of the asparagus, about ¼ of the way down, and discard.
  • Place the asparagus spears in a large bowl, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Use your hands to toss the asparagus.
  • Place the asparagus in a single layer on the grill grates perpendicular to the bars, and cook for 6-8 minutes with the lid open, rolling the asparagus to the other side halfway through using a spatula or tongs.
  • Serve immediately with lemon wedges, if desired.


Storage: It’s best to enjoy grilled asparagus immediately after cooking. However you can store any leftovers in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
