How to Serve Grilled Asparagus
I like to keep it simple seasoning with olive oil, salt and pepper but you can certainly doll-up this veg for serving!
Compound Butter is a delicious condiment and a great to finish off asparagus! If you’re using butter apply it when it comes off the grill and it’s still hot!
Bernaise Sauce can be drizzled over right before serving! This recipe has a blender version that makes it super easy to whip this up quickly. No worry about the eggs scrambling in this recipe!
Or try a Classic Hollandaise Sauce – it’s so easy to make in a blender, but looks and tastes super fancy!
