Grilled Asparagus in Dill Butter

  • 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
  1. Snap off and discard woody bases from asparagus. On a platter, drizzle asparagus with butter and sprinklewith dill, garlic, and pepper. Toss to combine.
  2. 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.)
  3. To serve, transfer asparagus to a serving dish. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
