I had some grilled asparagus at a friend’s place once and it was great. He did it on foil over the BBQ with butter and salt.

It sounds pretty simple, but the texture was kind of crunchy and it tasted great.

Does anybody else cook asparagus over an open flame?

oh yummy.. yes i love asparagus and we’ve often cooked it just by laying them straight on the grill after the coals have died down, with a drizzle of olive oil. It’s very easy very tasty food…

We haven’t grilled asparagus in a while, but I know what you mean about it being a bit crunchy.

When we cook fresh asparagus inside, we are always sure to avoid over cooking because it tastes better with the crunch left in!

Not I, no… but it sounds good if you like asparagus.  For some reason I just can’t get used to
it.  Maybe I’ve not had it prepared a good way yet.  grin

When I started eating asparagus, it was mostly canned and the texture was pretty soft. So I was surprised by how it turned out when my friend cooked it.

Come to think of it, it’s quite possible that he used olive oil instead of butter, too.

OMG,  Atula, how did you cook those? That sounds so good, grilling them! And asparagus, I’d never contemplating grilling them. Hmmm, butter or olive oil? I’ll have to try both. The asparagus is laid on raw, no parboiling or anything?

just wash the asparagus and drizzle the oil over… put them on the grill and turn them regularly so they dont burn… if they do the skin will be tough…. doesn’t take much cooking to be honest…

It’s really too bad that this is the first way most people eat asparagus.  I can understand why some people grow to hate it!

I think seasoning makes a huge difference.

I either put lemongrass and a little olive oil in with vegetables bound for the grill. Fresh lemons are even better, as along as they aren’t really old.

How about Lawry’s Season Salt, would that go well on the florets? It seems to be just the right dash on avocados and it always seems to complement other complex flavours.
