Grilled Asparagus 

Asparagus is versatile, but is great with the smoke of a grill.  If you are serving a crowd, you can blanch the asparagus for 2-3 minutes in boiling water and hold in the fridge, it will cook in half the time on the grill.  

Serves: 4-6 as a side dish 

Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:  

2 bunches Asparagus, ends removed 

2 Tbsp Grapeseed or Canola Oil 

3 Tbsp This Little Goat went to Southeast Asia Sauce  

¼ cup Mayonnaise 

2 tsp Lemon Zest 

¼ cup Parmesan Cheese, grated

Preheat grill. In a large bowl, toss asparagus with oil and 2 tablespoons Southeast Asia Sauce.  Lay dressed asparagus crosswise against hot grill grates and cook until well marked and just tender, flipping once or twice, about 4-6 minutes per side.  While asparagus is cooking, mix mayonnaise and remaining Southeast Asia Sauce in same bowl.  Remove asparagus from grill, and toss with mayonnaise mix until evenly coated. Transfer to serving platter, sprinkle with parmesan and lemon zest, and serve immediately.
