Notes
I usually prepare the marinate a few hours before I grill them. The longer the asparagus has time to marinate, the tastier it becomes.[br]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.
