What you will need: 

  • 1 lb British asparagus, trimmed
  • 1/4 cup olive oil, divided

Lemon Herb Gremolata:

  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper

Firstly, preheat your grill to medium-high heat.

Toss the asparagus with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Grill the asparagus for 5-7 minutes, turning occasionally, until tender and slightly charred.

While the asparagus is grilling, prepare the Lemon Herb Gremolata: In a small bowl, mix the lemon zest, parsley, basil, garlic, salt, and pepper. Drizzle in the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil and stir to combine.

Once the asparagus is cooked, place it on a serving platter and generously spoon the Lemon Herb Gremolata on top.

Serve immediately and enjoy the taste of the British season. It’s time to fire up the grill and give these seasonal green beauties the love they deserve – happy asparagus season everyone!
