Fire Grilled Asparagus

Yesterday was a perfect spring day in our beloved city.  In fact, if you were outside for any length of time you may have even experienced your first sunburn of the season.  I'm still as pasty as they come, but I'm working on adding a little colour.  I prefer the look of bronzed skin to red blisters anyway.  Slow and steady...

Being that it was so nice, we took the opportunity to grill up one of our favourite fresh veggies.  Sun, deck and a fired up BBQ resulted in a delicious side dish.

Don't you wish weekends lasted longer.  I know I do.  Happy Monday!

Fire Grilled Asparagus

2 lbs fresh asparagus
1 Tbsp olive oil
sea salt & pepper
juice from half a lemon

Preheat BBQ to high heat.
Bend asparagus gently, ends will snap off at their natural breaking point.  Drizzle olive oil over top and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
Place directly on grill and cook for 2-3 minutes, turning often, until charred and desired tenderness is reached.  Remove from heat.  Squeeze with juice from half lemon and serve.

Serves: 4
