			  Easy Lemon Grilled Asparagus

Serves: 2

Cooking time: 5


  • 1 bunch asparagus, trimmed
  • 1 1/2 tsp olive oil
  • One lemon, halved
  • Sea salt and cracked black pepper
  • 1 tsp lemon zest


  1. Brush cut halves of the lemon with a bit of the oil. Toss trimmed asparagus spears in remaining olive oil and season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  2. Place lemon halves, cut side down, on a barbeque or grill pan pre-heated to mediumhigh. Add asparagus spears and cook for 3 - 5 minutes, turning spears once or twice, until you see golden char marks and the asparagus is tender but still crisp.
  3. Remove all ingredients from barbeque, and squeeze juice from the grilled lemon over the asparagus spears and sprinkle with lemon zest. Serve immediately.

TIP: If cooking on a barbeque grate, you can also thread the spears onto skewers to make them easier to turn.
