This Foil Wrap Grilled Asparagus is nice,easy and fast recipe. It is only made with ingredients that should be in in your pantry: oil,pepper and salt. Wrap your asparagus in tin foil and let the heat grill and steam it slowly to a simple yet delicious taste. And I paired this asparagus with grilled Chinese Pork Barbecue and rice to complete our meal.
Plus a fried egg on top too...
I have made several Asparagus recipe in my blog like this Stir Fried Asparagus, Egg yolk Vinaigrette and Crock Pot Asparagus and Mushroom Soup; so it is very obvious how much I love this veggy. Would you believe it that I had not seen Asparagus until I came here ?
When I arrived here in the US, I lived with this really cool,generous and older, 93 year old, couple who took me in their wing and they really took good care of me. They helped me buy my first car by being my guarantor even when I still did not know how to drive, they let me live in their rental home; and mind you, this is not just a small box room, but the whole house- for a rent of $200.00/ month. This house was so big that my winter bill is $600.00/ month. I was naive, I should have just bought a small mobile heater.
Then they let me harvest their strawberry which Harry, the husband, grew. One summer,I got free tomatoes, cucumber ,cantaloupe. And then one spring, an Asparagus. I love all of the familiar veggies but I had affinity with Asparagus. I was happy being an Asparagus benefactor until Harry prod me to harvest them with him; and boy, that was not fun. I have to be vigilant when to harvest and where... they were among the deepest recesses of the bushes. Sweat trickled down my face under the sun in a somewhat cool spring. Since then, I scraped Asparagus in my cooking list and grumbled inside my mind ,"what the heck..."
For a long time, I thought the only way of eating Asparagus was harvesting my own..The time came that I was able to drive my own car and I went to a bigger supermarket and there I saw pile of asparagus. So once again I gave Asparagus a chance and from then on I got hooked and this is how this super simple healthy Asparagus recipe came to be. Although later I realized that there are tons of cook doing this Foil Wrap Grilled Asparagus, for awhile I thought I was the original creator this recipe,I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.
