Recipe created & provided by Chef Crusco Catering


  • 2 bunches large Asparagus – trim the last 1-2 inches
  • 10 tbsps. EVOO
  • 2 lemons – juice and zest

  1. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Toss the asparagus with 2 tbsps. EVOO to coat well.
  2. Season well with salt/pepper and toss.
  3. Add the lemon juice to a bowl. Add the remaining 8 tbsps. EVOO & whisk until emulsified. Set aside.
  4. Place Asparagus on the grill in a single layer, and cook, turning, until marked and tender, about 6-8 minutes (depending upon the thickness).
  5. Remove from the grill and transfer to a platter. Drizzle the lemon-evoo mixture all over the asparagus. Sprinkle the zest all over. Serve immediately or loosely cover with foil. Enjoy!
