Fresh Asparagus: When shopping for asparagus, look for fairly firm and vibrant green medium-sized spears with tightly closed tips. Don’t get too thick because it could be burned while cooking. After cleaning, trim off the bottom of the asparagus and cut into 2-inch pieces.

Cooking Oil: You can use any kind of cooking oil. My favourite is olive oil, but you can use your choice.

Salt & Pepper: Adding a sprinkle of salt and fresh ground pepper to the asparagus will enhance its flavour.

Lemon zest: Grated zest from a fresh lemon can bring a bright and citrusy note to the asparagus.

Garlic: You can use minced garlic or powder that adds aromatic depth to the dish.

How To Cook Asparagus On Blackstone

Before you start cooking, make sure that your griddle is clean and properly preheated. Turn on the griddle to medium heat (about 350 – 400 degrees) and let it heat up for a few minutes. You can also use a thermometer to check the exact temperature.

The next step is to wash the asparagus spears thoroughly under cold water to remove any dirt. Then trim the tough ends of the asparagus spears by gently bending them until they naturally snap.

Drizzle it with any oil, and make sure they are lightly coated. Then sprinkle salt, pepper, and any seasonings that you like such as lemon zest or minced garlic over the asparagus. Toss gently to evenly distribute the seasonings.

Carefully place the seasoned asparagus spears on the preheated griddle and arrange them in a single layer to ensure even cooking.

Allow the asparagus to cook for about 5-7 minutes, depending on the thickness of the spears. You can use tongs to turn the asparagus occasionally to ensure all sides get evenly grilled. Continue cooking until the asparagus becomes tender and slightly charred, but the colour will still remain the same.

Once the asparagus is cooked to your desired doneness, carefully remove them from the griddle using tongs and transfer them to a serving platter or individual plates.

Optional: For extra flavour, sprinkle some grated Parmesan cheese or toasted breadcrumbs.
