Grilled Asparagus with Balsamic and Parmesan

grilled asparagus with balsamic and parmesan recipe

Today’s post is going to be short and sweet. We are counting down the last day’s of school, I always forget how busy these weeks are. I am looking forward to summer vacation. I like the reprieve from the schedule for a bit.

This is hard to even call a recipe, but something that I make at least twice a week. I like asparagus, but I absolutely love it grilled. It is so easy to make, and takes about 7 minutes from start to finish. My favorite kind of recipe. 9 times out of 10, if I am grilling chicken or a steak, I throw a bunch of asparagus on the grill. I drizzle a little olive oil and put the stalks directly on the grates. I take them off and sometimes just add a squeeze of lemon juice, or a little dressing if I have made a salad. Most of the time, it is just a splash of balsamic and some Parmesan cheese. The simplest things are usually the best.

    This is almost always how I do my asparagus! Grilling is add so much flavor, but I love the addition of parm and balsamic! YUM!

    1. bakedbree

      I agree! I can’ eat it steamed anymore. I love it roasted or grilled too much.

    Roasted asparagus is so freaking awesome. I know I’ll love this recipe!

    1. bakedbree

      Yes it it! Love it roasted too.

  3. Kathy

    This sounds wonderful! What a great combination of flavors!

    1. bakedbree

      thank you!

    Is that a charcoal grill? Because if it is, I will be really impressed that you grill twice a week. We might fire up our grill twice a season!

    The asparagus does look really yummy. I wish that felt like enough incentive to haul the grill out of the basement – and up the narrow back stairs to our tiny second floor porch. Ugh..

      No, it is a gas grill. Why don’ you get a grill pan? I use mine all the time. It is a cast iron griddle and has a grill pan on the flip side. I use it so much more than I ever thought that I would.

        Grill pan, oh don’t I wish. Great idea, except the kitchen was built to the latest codes and standards – circa 1910! There is no stovetop ventilation, so high heat cooking, grilling, blackening, etc., is right out. The (gas) stove actually faces an inside wall (all lath and plaster, of course), so a total gutting would be needed to fix the problem.

        On a happier note, I did make a version of your recipe in the toaster oven. Although missing the lovely caramelizaton, it was still very tasty, and a flavor combination I would never have come up with, so thank you!

        1. bakedbree

          you are welcome! Roasted is just as good as grilled in my book.

    Just made this last night and I have never seen asparagus disappear so fast! This is a “total keeper” among my recipes, and now my mom’s!

    1. bakedbree

      That’s great! I love to eat asparagus this way. My favorite.
