personally I believe that about all vegetables taste well when grilled, and asparagus are no exception. I absolutely love asparagus and think that there is no better way to prepare them then on the barbecue, if you have never tried making them this way, nowadays is your chance ! These broiled asparagus are tossed in a simpleton dress made with vinegar, mustard, shallots and herbs that actually lightens up the dish and packs each sting with lots of season .
What you need to make this Grilled Asparagus and easy substitutions:
- Asparagus: the most authoritative ingredient. Look for asparagus spears that are medium in size. Fatter asparagus can be quite woody and ruffianly when grilled while spears that are besides tight-fitting can be harder to cook on a barbecue grill. Don ’ thyroxine forget to cut off the white ends of the spears as this can be quite hard.

- White Wine Vinegar: I recommend using white wine vinegar in the dress, but other desirable substitutes include apple cider vinegar, champagne vinegar, sherry vinegar or rice vinegar .
- Dijon Mustard: dijon mustard adds a nice bladderwrack and bite of spice to the dress. Feel release to substitute the mustard for farinaceous mustard or 1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
- Shallots: I love the elusive spirit of shallots in this dressing, but crimson onion which has been grated on a box grater can besides be used .
- Chives: fresh chives are a fantastic garlicky addition to the dressing and besides work as a pretty garnish. The closest substitution would be chopped scallions which have a exchangeable flavor .
Why you are going to love these Charred Asparagus:
- The spirit of asparagus wholly changes when it is grilled ( and is sooo much tastier than when it is steamed or poached ). The spears develop a fantastic smokiness and become slenderly charred on the ends .
- This smasher takes less than 15 minutes to prepare, so easy !
- The barbecued asparagus can be served either affectionate or cold, and as a salad or side serve. It ’ s a bang-up recipe to make for a barbecue because everything can be prepared a few hours in advance .
- Don ’ triiodothyronine have a barbeque ? Don ’ thyroxine worry ! You can grill the asparagus on a sandwich/panini press or a grill pan on the stave
- The dress is simple but truly enhances the flavor of the asparagus and adds a nice novelty to the serve

- 1 tbsp olive vegetable oil
- 2 bunches asparagus
woody ends removed
- 2 tsp white wine vinegar
- 2 tsp dijon mustard
- 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 1/2 tbsp finely cube shallots
- 1 tsp lemon zest
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp capsicum
- 1 tbsp chopped chives
Drizzle the asparagus spears with the olive oil. Turn the barbecue to high heat or alternatively heat a large cast iron skillet or grill pan on high heat and once hot, place 6-8 spears of asparagus in the pan (you will have to work in batches to cook the asparagus so that they char evenly). Cook them for approximately 4 minutes until fork tender, turning them every minute or so to ensure they brown on all sides. Set the charred asparagus aside and continue cooking the remaining batches of asparagus until it is all cooked.
Add the dijon mustard and white wine vinegar to a bowl and whisk until smooth. Start by adding in 1 tbsp of olive oil, whisking continuously to help the mixture emulsify. Continue adding 1 tbsp of olive oil at a time while whisking until the dressing has thickened and become creamy in consistency.
Add the diced shallots, lemon zest, salt and pepper to the dressing and mix. Arrange the charred asapargus on a platter or serving plate and drizzle the dressing overtop. Garnish with the chopped chives and serve warm or at room temperature.
