Grilled Asparagus

A fresh and delicious spring side-dish featuring Idaho-grown asparagus.


  • 1-2 bunches local asparagus (Owyhee Produce - Ida-spear, Sunnyside Farm)
  • 3 cloves fresh garlic, minced (available through local farmers markets and CSA's)
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil (can withstand higher temperatures, but olive oil, coconut oil, etc. will also work)
  • freshly ground salt & pepper


  1. Pre-heat grill to medium-high heat.
  2. Add avocado oil and minced garlic to a small dish or cup.
  3. Align fresh asparagus on a pan.
  4. With a kitchen brush, lightly coat asparagus with garlic oil mixture. Brush oil on each side so each spear is coated evenly.
  5. Sprinkle with fresh ground pepper and salt to liking.
  6. With tongs, place asparagus on grill in the opposite direction of the grates.
  7. Cook for approx 5-7 minutes, turning occasionally.
  8. When desired texture is reached, remove from grill and serve.


  • Serve with additional salt & pepper to taste.
