3-Ingredient Grilled Asparagus

Spring is here!

Well, I think it is anyway. It’s kind of hard to tell here in the Pacific Northwest. At least if you are using sunny, warm days as an indicator of Spring.

While the sky has been mostly gray and cloudy the last couple of weeks, funny things are popping up at farmers markets and the grocery store.  Things like asparagus, strawberries, spring onions, fava beans and even fiddlehead ferns.  I even thought I saw some real baby carrots but I may have had my winter coat buttoned too tight (insert sarcasm).

The good news is that even if the weather won’t cooperate, the harvest is.  Asparagus are everywhere right now and taste amazing! This is a simple technique that is hard to mess up and unbelievably delicious!

Three simple ingredients (I even counted kosher salt as an ingredient), a grill and 5 minutes are all you need for perfect grilled asparagus every time.


  • Yes, I am the nutcase who has an asparagus plate.  Don’t judge.
  • If you don’t have a grill or feel like turning it on, use the broiler in your oven.

0 Points Plus -- Recipe Serves 2 (or more)
Serves: 2
  • 1 pound asparagus, ends trimmed and peeled
  • non stick cooking spray
  • kosher salt
  1. Trim 1" off the end of each asparagus spear (or until the hard white part is gone).
  2. Carefully peel the lower third of each spear, taking care not to use too much pressure as the spears can easily break.
  3. Spray spears with non stick cooking spray, toss and spray again so that they are evenly coated. Lightly sprinkle with kosher salt.
  4. Cook on a medium hot grill for 2 to 3 minutes each side. Remove, serve immediately and Enjoy!

      One of the nice things about living here is that we can grill pretty much year round but I am most excited about grilling with Spring and Summer veggies!

    How come you peel the bottom? I have never done that! My 3.5 year old used to love asparagus but now won’t touch it :( My 1 year old however, gobbles it up so I am back to cooking it! Thanks for the recipe!

      Sharon, it makes them so tender! Try it and let me know what you think. My absolute favorite restaurant in NYC only served asparagus peeled like that. Kids are crazy with their food issues lol.
