I made this for our 4th of July party/BBQ. Easy to prepare. I liked that it wasn't over seasoned. Really intensified (sp?) the flavor of the fresh asparagus. Tender and delicious. Thank-you for a great recipe.

I didn't grill this, actually I did them under the broiler... they took maybe 10 minutes, and I turned them once during cooking. The simple seasonings and cooking method, as stated, really does let the fresh taste of the asparagus take center stage. Fantastically easy and the flavour is just to die for. I actually had made this to accompany grilled steaks on Saturday evening... tonight we're having it with greek-roasted chicken. I'm in heaven just thinking about it. Thanks for this one!

Wonderful! Used my grill pan and the asparagus came out PERFECT! DH doesn't like asparagus and he went back for thirds!!
