Grilled asparagus with Parmesan

For me, asparagus is the pure taste of spring. It has a short season and is utterly delicious when eaten fresh and simply cooked.

Method

I love asparagus steamed but I also enjoy it grilled for an extra layer of flavour which pairs well with the saltiness of the parmesan cheese. A final drizzle of good aged balsamic vinegar really finishes it off.

 

 

Heat a ridged grill pan until searingly hot.

 

 

Prepare the asparagus by snapping off the woody ends and discarding.

 

 

Place the asparagus spears on the grill pan in a single layer – Do this in batches if necessary.

 

 

When the spears have browned nicely, they are done. They should still be crisp.

 

 

Lay on a serving plate and season well. Grate over the parmesan and finish with a drizzle of balsamic. Serve at room temperature.

Ingredients
