    Ingredients:

    Servings:

      Grill peppers over high heat turning as it browns about 20 minutes, or until the skins darken and blister. Remove the peppers from the grill, and place them in a paper bag. Close the bag by folding over twice. Set the peppers aside to cool. The steaming helps to loosen the skin.

    6. 6
      Arrange 4-8 asparagus spears on a flat surface. Thread 2 (5 cm, 2-inch) skewers horizontally through spears 2-3 cm (1 inch) from each end to form a raft. Repeat procedure with remaining asparagus spears. Amount of skewers and asparagus depends on their size.
    7. 7

    8. 8

      The sauce to this recipe is very yummy. I could eat it with a spoon, in fact, I did! As I love asparagus, I loved this dish. I didn't grill it as the recipe suggested (too cold outside), instead I roasted it in the oven for about 15 - 20 minutes until done. Will definitely make it again. Thank you awalde for a keeper of a side dish!

      Excellent! I didn't make any grilled asparagus, but I know the red bell pepper sauce would be great with it. Instead, I just made the sauce and used it on some broiled ono (white fish). I charred the peppers over the flame on my gas stove because I wasn't grilling anything. The sauce is beautiful and delicious! Leftovers will be used as salad dressing.

      I didn't bother with the skewers-just cooked the asparagus directly on a griddle pan. No way you could ever use half a cup of oil on the asparagus, I brushed a couple of teaspoons over. I made 2/3 of the salsa and only used a small portion of it but plan to use the rest over grilled chicken breasts. The salsa is yummy and the ginger/lemon goes so well with the charred sweetness of the asparagus.
