Savory Asparagus + Balsamic Parmesan

Summertime means a lot of things to lots of people, and one of the most agreeable outdoors activities is cooking foods over a charcoal grill. Am I right? It doesn’t matter if you’re an amateur or a pitmaster there’s nothing like firing up the charcoal grill and cooking some of your favorite foods over lots of smoke-infused heat. Personally, for me, that boils down to lots of weekday and weekend dinners prepared over a glowing hot charcoal fire. Mains, sides and even a few desserts get the grill treatment, and they’re better for it.

Summertime means lots of grilling.

Case in point. Recently, I picked up some fresh asparagus at our local farmers’ market and prepared them on the grill and let me tell you it was simply delicious. I’m telling you it’s impossible to go wrong with this one. And it makes for a great side for grilled chicken breasts, beef or salmon steaks. If you like asparagus, you will love this recipe.

How about we get this fire started already?

When it comes to grilling it’s always best to get the fire going as quickly as possible because you want to give the charcoal plenty of time to get to temperature before you are ready to add whatever you’re cooking on the grill. I love getting the fire started using my Weber starter chimney. If you like charcoal grilling, then a Weber starter chimney is the way to go because it significantly cuts down the amount of time it takes to get the charcoal briquettes from zero to white-hot in short order.  

There is something about cooking with fresh ingredients, and this bunch of asparagus turned out great with minced ginger and lots of chopped garlic. I also used melted sweet cream butter, grated Parmesan off of the block, and a drizzle of balsamic glaze. 

So, what are you waiting for? Grab those beautiful asparagus out of the fridge and give them some good lovin’ with our Savory Asparagus + Balsamic Parmesan recipe. Or prepare them at your next backyard grilling party or get together because this side is a foodie certified winner.
