For a change, I tried Steven's recipe form "How to Grill" for grilled asparagus.
What a success. I recieved more compliments on this than any other part of the meal.
Even converted a few non-asparagus eaters :lol:
My thanks again to Steven for broadening our grilling horizons.

It's great stuff. Has kind of a nutty flavor to it IMHO.

Actually Big Belly, this WAS the recipe that got my kids to eat it. I make this sesame grill asparagus all the time and everyone (even the kids) loves it.

I'll go you one better. I don't know why, but both of my kids not only like asparagus they also like brussel sprouts.
Go figure.

I also love Steven’s recipe for asparagus. But if you want some variation, try this:
Place the asparagus in a Ziploc bag and top them off with a mixture of lemon juice, minced garlic, olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste. Marinate the asparagus for at least 2 hours, and then grill them according to Steve’s instructions. My kids eat this too.
Enjoy!

I tried that asparagus recipe for the first time tonight also. It was great. Didn't have ant sesame seed's in the pantry (thought I did) but it still was very good.

I did have a problem w / a few spears'of the asparagus snapping in two when I ran the bamboo skewer's thu them. I'll check the Asian market to see if they have any smaller in dia.

Thought about steaming the asparagus for a minute or two next time to make it a little less brittle ( have only been able to find it with very thick stalk's here lately ) . YB2
I'll eat anything that won't eat me first !!!

The kids at the gathering were the funniest part.

First it was "Oh no, ASPARAGUS"
Next "Do we have to eat it?"
"Ok, but just one"
"It was OK"
"Can we have some more?"


I guess I will have to plant more asparagus next year. :lol:

I like Steven's recipe a lot, and it's a big hit whenever I cook it. I've also used garlic- or lemon-infused olive oil on these and other grilled veggies with great results.
