If you like asparagus, you'll love this easy and delicious grilled asparagus recipe. A simple marinade adds that extra flavor that puts this on the must-grill list.

How to Make It

Step 1

Prepare grill.

Step 2

Snap off tough ends of asparagus. Combine all ingredients except cooking spray in a large zip-top plastic bag; seal and marinate for 30 minutes. Remove asparagus from bag, and discard marinade. Place asparagus on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 5 minutes on each side or until asparagus is done.

I've been making asparagus using this recipe for years. It never gets old! And, as other reviewers said, it can be used as a go-to marinade for all sorts of things. I've used it for chicken breasts as well. This is a good one to memorize, so you're never without it.

This recipe is awesome. We had this as a side for the Cedar Planked Honey Lime Salmon. It cooked easily side-by-side on the grill with the salmon and everything was ready quickly and within a few minutes of each other. Will definitely make this again

It's usually too lemon-y for us, so we don't use as much lemon juice. We've used this regularly at my house and even at backyard BBQs with friends. A great way to get folks to eat their veggies!

I did not care for the tanginess this marinade loaned to the asparagus. I would much rather stick to Wegmans basting oil and some salt & pepper. I would not make this again.

My husband and I LOVE this recipe! We also add lemon pepper seasoning and salt after marinating but before grilling.

This was sooooooo good that even my 5 year old that doesn't like vegetables loved it. Really easy and tastes great! Will be making again for sure. Served it was shrimp skewers and "green' rice (rice with spinach and garlic).
