Here’s how to make the best grilled asparagus! It’s so easy and comes out tender and charred, with a hint of smoke. Spritz with lemon and enjoy.


  • 1 pound asparagus (thin stalks preferable)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese, optional


  1. Preheat a grill to medium-high heat (375 to 450 degrees).
  2. Cut off the tough ends of the asparagus.
  3. In a bowl, mix the asparagus with the olive oil, kosher salt, and plenty of fresh ground black pepper.
  4. Place the asparagus directly on the grill grates and grill for about 3 to 4 minutes until charred and tender, turning once.
  5. Remove from the grill and spritz with lemon juice from wedges from 1/2 of the lemon. If desired, top with Parmesan cheese and serve.
