Description

This simple, grilled asparagus dish is livened up by a bright citrus vinaigrette, making it a great summer side dish.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 bunch standard asparagus, trimmed*
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper
  • Thin, 1 inch strips of orange zest (of about 1/3 orange)
  • Thin, 1 inch strips of lemon zest (of about ½ lemon)

Vinaigrette:

  • 1 tbsp fresh orange juice
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • ½ tsp Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

  1. Grill asparagus: Preheat grill pan to medium-high heat. Lightly drizzle asparagus with oil, season with salt and pepper, and toss to coat. Grill a total of about 6-10 minutes or until crisp-tender, flipping half way through. Transfer to plate and garnish with citrus zest.
  2. Make vinaigrette & serve: Whisk together citrus juices and mustard. Slowly stream in oil while whisking continuously. Season with salt and pepper. Drizzle vinaigrette over asparagus. Reserve any remaining dressing for future use. Enjoy.

Notes

  • Trim asparagus by snapping off bottom portion of stem where it naturally breaks, about 1-3 inches from the bottom.
  • Asparagus come in fat, standard and pencil thin thicknesses, which have variable cooking times. If using fat asparagus, use a vegetable peeler to remove the tough, outer skin.
