Grilled Asparagus

Tender, with a delicious barbecue flavor, this grilled asparagus makes a perfect side dish for grilled meats. Don't know how to cook asparagus on the grill? Just place asparagus on a double skewer. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

    Had a good flavor will make again. Used it as a side dish with halibut.

    My husband really liked this recipe. I didn't buy the best asparagus- the bottoms were very stringy- but the flavor was good.
