Grilled Asparagus

This is my own little experiment. I've tried asparagus on the grill other ways, and it can come out a little too dry. This is a great and relatively easy companion for most grilled dishes.


1 bunch of asparagus (for two servings)
Sesame oil
Course salt and freshly ground pepper
Parmigiano Reggiano cheese


Par-boil the asparagus for about 4 minutes, enough to get them about half-cooked. Put the asparagus on a plate and drizzle with a little butter and sesame oil. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. Toss the asparagus on the grill for another 5 minutes or so. Plate the asparagus and cover with fresh shavings of Parmigiano Reggiano cheese. Serve hot.
