Grilled Asparagus

I couldn't pass up a batch of fresh asparagus in the grocery store this past week. But I wanted a different way to prepare it. This was delicious, different, and easy. Just what I ordered. And--it's socially appropriate to eat it with your fingers.


1/2 pound
3 tablespoons
balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons
fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon
olive oil
1 tablespoon
low-sodium soy sauce
1/8 teaspoon
black pepper


Mix all the ingredients together and pour into a gallon-sized zip lock bag. Add the asparagus.

Let the asparagus sit in the mixture for 30 minutes.

Take asparagus out of the mixture and put it on your warmed grill.Watch it closely! It burns easily. After about a minute, roll the asparagus to the other side.

As the outside starts to caramelize, take it off the grill. Serve warm.
