2 lb. asparagus
1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 tsp. truffle salt or sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Parmesan cheese (optional)


  1. Trim 2 inches of asparagus from bottom ends and wash the spears well. Place the asparagus on a plate. Drizzle the olive oil over, and rub it into the asparagus.
  2. Preheat the grill to medium high and place the asparagus on the grill grate. Grill the asparagus for 4 to 5 minutes, until the spears begin to brown and soften. When tender, transfer the asparagus to a serving dish and sprinkle with truffle salt and pepper. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, if desired, and serve.
