Grilled asparagus with garlic and olive oil recipe

If you’ve followed my recipes at all – you know I love garlic. This recipe didn’t disappoint in the garlic department and it’s sooo easy! This recipe is sooo easy.



Olive oil

Fresh garlic, peeled and minced – as much or as little as you like. I think you can never have too much garlic. We used 5 or 6 cloves.

Rock salt

Optional: Parmesan cheese garnish


1.) Cut off bottom tips of the asparagus. This are generally stringy and fibrous.

2.) Put the asparagus tops in a glass pan or dish (with lid) or a large resealable bag.

3.) Drizzle olive oil over asparagus, add minced garlic. Let it sit. If it’s in a resealable bag you can occasionally move bag around for good coverage. If they are in a pan, move them around a couple times.

4.) Sprinkle with a little salt, place on grill medium-low heat and grill for about 6 to 7 minutes until tender.

5.) Garnish with shaved parmesan cheese (optional)

We enjoyed this recipe with grilled honey-teriyaki chicken!

Sunshine and grilling. That's what I'm talking about. 🙂

    One of my favorite ways to cook asparagus is to saute’ in olive oil, with garlic & fresh sliced shitake mushrooms.
