Asparagus is my favorite green vegetable. It heralds Spring and now is the perfect time to grab a nice bunch at the grocery store and throw it on the grill! Granted, it's very difficult to actually GRILL asparagus and that is where this handy dandy grill basket comes to the rescue.
Simply get the grill hot, carefully place the washed and trimmed asparagus in the basket, and drizzle with about 1 - 2 t. olive oil and toss to coat the asparagus spears. Yes, it will blaze up, but that is what will give you such a beautiful char on spears.
Using tongs, continue to toss the spears until they are charred, but still crisp.
Place on a plate, lightly salt and pepper (I used lemon pepper), and add a squeeze of fresh lemon. Heaven on a plate.
