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.

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!

This is a very nice asparagus recipe. I would make it for company or a special occasion. But - because I'm stingy and reserve my five stars for my absolute favorite recipes, I can't give this five stars.

If you have to get your veggies in, this is a remarkable way to do it. My hubby and kids didn't love it like my daughter and I did. Although, my hubby did make a remark that this would taste great with green beans. They just don't like asparagus no matter how I disguise it. I loved how the BBQ charred it and gave it a unique taste! I will be trying this on green beans next.

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.

So good! You'll definitely want to double or triple this recipe. I love anything with balsamic vinegar, and grilling this makes it caramelize on the asparagus. Yum, yum yum makes me hungry just thinking about 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

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.

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).
