Grilled Asparagus with Lemon and Olive Oil

Grilled Asparagus with Lemon and Olive Oil


  • 1 lb large asparagus, woody ends trimmed*

  • 3 Tbsp J. Olive Co. Lemon olive oil, plus more for drizzling

  • 3/4 tsp Salt Sisters Sea Salt

  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

  • 1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice


  1. Preheat the grill to medium.

  2. In a shallow baking dish, toss the asparagus with the olive oil to coat well. Add the salt and pepper, then toss.

  3. Place the asparagus on the grill in a single layer, and cook, turning until marked and tender, about 12 to 15 minutes.

  4. Transfer to a platter, sprinkle with the lemon juice and drizzle with olive oil, to taste. Cover with aluminum foil and let sit for 5 minutes before serving.

  5. *NOTE: Large asparagus can be placed directly on the grill; smaller ones may fall through during cooking. If cooking thin asparagus, use a grill basket.
