Grilled Asparagus with Garlic Aioli

May 17, 2012

I like asparagus. Aaron does not.

Joke’s on him.

Grilling vegetables is always a great option. Now that spring is here, I foresee much more of this—and asparagus was the perfect way to get started.

I really enjoy the simplicity of grilling vegetables, too. All I added to the asparagus was a little olive oil, salt, pepper and lemon zest. I decided to spice it up a little with a garlic aioli (much like Burgerville does with their fried asparagus).

Grilled Asparagus

A bunch of asparagus, cleaned and trimmed

1-2 teaspoons olive oil

1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

½ teaspoon salt

Sprinkling of lemon zest

Start by combining the above ingredients in a zip-lock bag. Massage the asparagus in the bag to ensure each piece is well coated. Place on a heated grill and grill until desired doneness is achieved.

Garlic Aioli

3/4 cup mayonnaise

3 garlic cloves, minced

2 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

3/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Combine the above ingredients, cover and refrigerate at least 30 minutes prior to serving.
