This recipe for grilled asparagus worked well under the broiler. We enjoyed this a few weeks ago when it was way too cold for grilling out.
- 1 pound asparagus, tough ends removed
- 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
- 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
Pour the marinade ingredients into a zippered plastic storage bag. I folded the bag over the edge of a mug to hold the bag up while I measured the ingredients.
Add the asparagus to the zippered bag and marinade for 30 minutes.
I put the asparagus on a cookie sheet lined with foil and set it under the broiler for about 8 minutes, turning the asparagus once.
Delicious. Great flavor. I think it would be even better with toasted sesame seeds on it. Next time.
When asked, DH said yes, definitely make the asparagus again. 🙂 Next time, I think I’ll cut the asparagus into bite size pieces before marinading. Easier to eat. And when warmer weather finally shows up, we’ll try it on the grill. For grilling, I think I’d slide the whole asparagus onto two skewers, ladder fashion. They would be easier to flip on the grill.
