These asparagus can be grilled or roasted in the oven. A simple balsamic reduction tops them off. From the tag off the asparagus.
- 1 -1 1⁄2 lb asparagus
- 1 shallot, thinly sliced
- 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt (I prefer kosher)
- fresh ground pepper
- 1⁄4 cup balsamic vinegar
- Toss the asparagus with shallot, oil, 1/8 tsp salt and pepper. Roast or grill turning twice, until tender and browned, 8 to 10 minutes.
- Bring vinegar and the remaining 1/8 teaspoons salt to a simmer in a small skillet over medium-high heat until slightly syrupy and toss the asparagus with the reduced vinegar.
These are really great with the balsamic sauce. I let my sauce simmer a little so that it developed a syrupy type density. That way it stuck to my asparagus that much better! Thanks for sharing. Made for Best of 2009 Tag game.
Lovely and Fresh! I prepared in pan over gas grill for just about five minutes. I also roasted red pepper and onion along with it to make into a roasted veggies salad. Prepared for ZWT5 Team Jammin Java Jivers.
