Asparagus Gremolata

Prep time 4 mins
Cook time 6 mins
Yield 4 servings (serving size: about 5 spears)
Because asparagus spears don't really have "sides," simply roll them around with tongs while grilling to guarantee even cooking.

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated fresh lemon rind
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
