Grilled Asparagus in Dill Butter
For even doneness and browning, line up the stalks along the grill rack and roll often.
|1 pound||asparagus spears|
|2 tablespoons||butter, melted|
|1 tablespoon||snipped fresh dill or 1 teaspoon dried dill|
|1 clove||garlic, minced|
|1/4 teaspoon||cracked black pepper|
|finely shredded Parmesan cheese|
Snap off and discard woody bases from asparagus. On a platter, drizzle asparagus with butter and sprinkle with dill, garlic, and pepper. Toss to combine. For a charcoal grill, place asparagus on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals. Grill for 7 to 10 minutes or until asparagus is crisp-tender, rolling asparagus occasionally to ensure even cooking. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place asparagus on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as directed.) To serve, transfer asparagus to a serving dish. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
