Emeril's Grilled Asparagus with Garlic
Emeril Lagasse Sweet Summer Recipes
Emeril Lagasse visited "Good Morning America" to show how to prepare a delicious trio of recipes that are just perfect for August, but will be fantastic for any time of year. He cooked grilled salmon with sweet corn, tomato and avocado relish. For the side dish, he grilled asparagus with garlic.
Preheat the grill to medium.
In a baking dish, toss the asparagus with the oil to coat. Add the salt and pepper to taste, and toss to coat evenly.
Place the asparagus on the grill in a single layer, and cook, turning, until marked and tender, about 12 minutes.
Transfer to a platter, sprinkle with the lemon juice and garlic and toss well.
Cover with aluminum foil and let sit for 5 minutes before serving.
Note: Large asparagus can be placed directly on the grill; smaller ones may fall through during cooking. If cooking very thin asparagus, use a grill basket.
