Garlic-Grilled Asparagus

3 tablespoons olive oil
juice from half a lemon
6 cloves of pressed or minced garlic
salt and pepper to taste
desired amount of asparagus
 


Wash and dry asparagus. Cut and remove 1 inch from the bottom of each stalk. In a large bowl, mix together 3 tablespoons olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and salt and pepper. Toss asparagus spears in the mixture, allowing it to sit for at least 10 minutes. Place asparagus spears directly on the grill rack and cook for 5 minutes. Turn the spears and cook for another 3 minutes. If a softer consistency is desired, continue cooking, turning at 3-minute intervals.
