Easy Grilled Parmesan Asparagus
This quick and easy, 15 minute Grilled Parmesan Asparagus side dish is a grilling-season must! Roasted directly on the grill grates, the smokey, indirect heat brings out the best in these tender, crisp spears. Top your earthy spears with the salty, nutty bite of fresh-shredded Parmesan cheese and you have a healthy side dish that tastes like a million bucks!
- 1 pound asparagus
- 2 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, fresh cracked
- 3 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, fresh shredded
Rinse and pat dry the asparagus spears.
Snap or cut away the bottom woody one to two inches of each spear.
Toss the asparagus spears with the olive oil, salt, and pepper.
Place directly on the grill grates, but not directly over a flame.
Close the grill lid and cook for 5-10 minutes until grill marks develop, edges begin to char and the spears are tender-crisp. Cook time will depend on grill temperature and asparagus spear thickness.
Remove from the heat and immediately top with shredded parmesan cheese.
