Grill Asparagus, Recipe with Step by Step Photos

I’ll show you my recipe for Grill Asparagus today.

As a side dish I have prepared parsley potatoes and I replace the sauce with a fine nut butter. The nut butter is a cooked, clarified and browned butter that tastes delicious.

This asparagus dish you conjure up on your plate in less than 30 minutes. You can use green or white asparagus. 

I wish you every success!

1. Buying and preparing Asparagus

I prefer local asparagus, it tastes better and comes at best from your surroundings. By buying domestic asparagus you firstly secure jobs in Germany and secondly you contribute to less CO2 pollution. That helps the planet!

German asparagus season: early April to late June. The official end is the asparagus New Year’s Eve on 24 June.

1.1 Detect fresh Asparagus

You can recognize fresh asparagus by the following characteristics:

  1. Shiny peel
  2. Closed asparagus heads
  3. Fresh asparagus has no brown spots
  4. Fresh asparagus smells pleasant

Asparagus fresh, the ends should not be too dry.

1.2 Asparagus peeling made easy

I’ll show you the professional chef asparagus peeler in the following:

  • Please peel white asparagus starting about 3 cm below the tips.
  • Green asparagus only at the end about 5 cm peel.

Here a picture:


Peel asparagus like a pro: Grasp the tip of the asparagus spear with your fingers. Place the asparagus spear over your hand on your wrist. While peeling, turn the asparagus spear with your fingers and remove the peel evenly with the pendulum peeler. By placing the asparagus spear on the hand and wrist, the asparagus gets a stable surface when peeling and does not break!

Use a sharp pendulum peeler to peel the asparagus, then it will work smoothly!

2. Recipe Asparagus grilled

For the simple asparagus dish you only need a few ingredients. I love such dishes, the effort remains manageable and it tastes down-to-earth and delicious!

Before it starts I have a surprise for you: You can add crabs to this asparagus dish….

Grilled asparagus with prawns. Heat the prawns only briefly in nut butter and serve. Tastes very delicious, I promise!
