Tips / Suggestions

  • Another easy way to separate the base of the asparagus is to grab both ends and carefully snap. It should break apart at the weak point of where is needs to be removed.
  • Asparagus holds up pretty well on the grill. If you’d like to get more char, feel free to grill longer before throwing in the pan.
  • Compound butter is very easy to make. Just let a stick of butter sit a room temp and then mix in salt / pepper, finely chopped herbs of choice, and minced garlic. Wrap in saran wrap and let sit in the refrigerator for a couple hours.
