Asparagus is a seasonal treat that when cooked on a plank gains a delicious smoky flavor that can’t be gained any other way.
1: 11.75" x 5.25" Outdoor Gourmet Grilling Plank. Soaked in water for 2-8 hours before using.
1 bunch of fresh asparagus
Juice of 2 fresh lemons (approx. 3-4 tablespoons)
1 tsp. fresh lemon zest
3-4 TBS. extra virgin olive oil
Coarsely ground salt and pepper
First: Wash and trim asparagus. Mix lemon juice and olive oil. In a shallow pan or bowl, toss asparagus gently with lemon juice and olive oil to coat.
Second: Arrange asparagus spears in one layer on wet plank. Apply ground, coarse salt and pepper to taste.
Then: Place plank on medium heat grill. Close lid and cook for about 10 min. or until crisp and tender. Check every few minutes. If flare-ups occur douse flames with spray water bottle.
Finally: When done cooking, remove from heat and sprinkle with fresh lemon zest. Serve from plank or from a serving platter.
