  • Author: wellness sleuth


Grilled Marinated Asparagus with Gremolata is a great recipe for a casual dinner or family outing. The asparagus is marinated in olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and herbs, then grilled to perfection. 


1 lb. fresh asparagus, trimmed
1 T. extra virgin olive oil
1 T. balsamic vinegar
1½ t. Mediterranean-spiced sea salt*
Black pepper, to taste
2 whole lemons, cut in half
Shaved Parmesan cheese, to serve (optional)

¼ c. fresh parsley leaves, washed, dried thoroughly, and finely chopped
1 t. organic lemon zest
2 t. preserved lemon rind, rinsed and finely chopped
1 large clove garlic, grated
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste



  1. Place asparagus in a wide, shallow bowl and drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Season with Mediterranean-spiced sea salt and black pepper, to taste. Gently toss to combine and set aside for 15-20 minutes to marinade.
  2. Prepare the gremolata by combining all ingredients is a small bowl. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and set aside.
  3. Spray grill grates with non-stick cooking spray and preheat grill to medium-high. Place asparagus and lemon halves over direct heat and grill for 3-4 minutes per side, or until they are crisp tender.
  4. Remove from heat and transfer to a serving dish. Top with gremolata and serve immediately with grilled lemons for squeezing and shaved Parmesan cheese, if desired. Enjoy!
