- 1 pound asparagus
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tablespoon Litehouse® Fresh Dried Italian Herb Blend
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- Preheat the grill to high heat.
- While grill is preheating, cut 1-inch off the ends of the asparagus. Rinse under cold water and pat dry. Place the asparagus on a baking sheet, and drizzle the extra virgin olive oil. Then, sprinkle on the Litehouse® Fresh Dried Italian Herb Blend, kosher salt, and ground black pepper. Using your hands, massage the seasoning into the asparagus.
- Reduce the heat to low on the grill. Clean the grill, and spray cooking spray on the grill grates. Carefully, add the asparagus spears onto the grill. Close the lid and cook for five minutes. *Turn the asparagus halfway through cooking to avoid burning.
- Carefully, remove the asparagus spears from the grill and place on a platter. Serve immediately.
