Grill Asparagus, Recipe with Step by Step Photos

from
Hi, I am a German Chef and Food Photographer. The imparting of cooking knowledge is my great passion. Everyone can cook for himself and with this website I would like to contribute to its success. Cooking questions I answer you gladly at the end of the articles. Have fun and good luck!

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

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….
