I like my asparagus to be more on the crunchy side, so I don't grill for more than 5-7 minutes. You can grill to your desired preference.
First gather all your fresh ingredients- asparagus, garlic, parsley, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper.
After you trim the asparagus, mince the garlic, and chop the parsley, place all the ingredients in a plastic zipper bag to marinate.
Shake the bag well to coat the asparagus. They need to marinate for at least 30 minutes, but I usually marinate them for a few hours.
The longer the marinade has to soak into the asparagus, the more favorable they will be!
Warm up your grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Today I used my grill pan because our outdoor grill isn’t all the big and we already had the meat going.
Place the asparagus on the grill in a single layer. Grill each side for a few minutes, until grill marks appear, then flip over to grill the other side.
I like my asparagus to be a little bit crunchy, but you can grill them for as long or short, as you like. Remove from the grill and serve warm.
These are the perfect side dish for steaks, chicken, salmon, or whatever protein your family enjoys!
