BBQ grilled asparagus

Side Serves 4 15 min
The BBQ is a perfect tool to grill your asparagus. If any asparagus spears are particularly fat you can split them in half lengthways to speed up the cooking. Timings will depend on the heat of your BBQ but they'll become noticeably suppler when cooked. Just take care not to lose them between the griddle bars.

Ingredients

  • asparagus spears, 250g
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • squeeze of lemon juice
