My hubby and I could eat grilled asparagus and artichoke everyday. Well, we almost do! It's a staple in our household but today I wanted to spice it up a bit. I always marinate my asparagus in olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper and whatever other spices I'm in the mood for but today I drizzled an aged balsamic on top. This isn't just any aged balsamic this one is sweet and extremely thick, sort of like syrup. It's a must try!
1 bunch thin asparagus (You can use thick but I much prefer thin!)
2 garlic cloves
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Aged balsamic vinegar, drizzled
Heat the oven to med-high, clean and wipe the grates with a touch of olive oil
Divide the asparagus bunch into 2-3 bunches and tie with meat twine at the top and bottom. (I do this so the asparagus doesn't fall through the grates.) Place each bunch onto the grill and grill for about 5-8 minutes.
Take off the grill and drizzle with balsamic.
