Barbecued Asparagus with Lemon and Mint Butter
Ready in: Under 15 Mins
If the sun doesn't shine, you don't have to cook these on the barbecue. A good griddle pan will give you that same tasty charred flavour
Ingredients:2 bundles of British asparagus
2 tbsp olive or rapeseed oil
125g unsalted butter
juice of 1 lemon
2 tbsp mint leaves, finely chopped
50g vegetarian Parmesan-style cheese shavings
- Trim the asparagus as necessary. Place on a baking sheet or in a bowl and toss with the oil, making sure all of the asparagus is well coated.
- Put the asparagus on the grill rack of the barbecue and cook for approximately two minutes on each side, until it is lightly charred. Remove from the barbecue and divide between four serving plates.
- Melt the butter. Add the lemon juice and chopped mint. Pour over the asparagus, season and sprinkle with the Parmesan-style cheese shavings.
