    • Pre-heat grill to medium-high heat.

    • Add avocado oil and minced garlic to a small dish or cup.

    • Align fresh asparagus on a pan.

    • With a kitchen brush, lightly coat asparagus with garlic oil mixture. Brush oil on each side so each spear is coated evenly.

    • Sprinkle with fresh ground pepper and salt to liking.

    • With tongs, place asparagus on grill in the opposite direction of the grates.

    • Cook for approx 5-7 minutes, turning occasionally.

    • When desired texture is reached, remove from grill and serve. Serve with additional salt & pepper to taste.
