Thyme Marinated Grilled Asparagus

Time: 21 mins

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs asparagus, tough stems trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar (or try balsamic!)
  • 2 shallots, chopped (or 1/4 cup scallions)
  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon orange juice concentrate
  • 1 tablespoon whole grain mustard
  • 1/3 cup olive oil, extra virgin
  • salt and black pepper

Directions

  • 1 Bring 2 quarts of salted water to a boil in a large stockpot. Add asparagus and cook until it is crisp tender, 3 or 4 minutes, depending on the size. Drain and dip in icy cold water. Set aside.
  • 2 In a bowl combine vinegar, shallots, garlic, thyme, orange juice concentrate, and mustard. Slowly whisk in the oil to blend well. Season with salt and pepper.
  • 3 Pour mixture over asparagus. Let marinate while you light the coals or start the grill.
  • 4 To make the grilling easier, you can place the asparagus on skewers, running a skewer through each end of the spear and fitting about 5 spears on each pair of skewers. Grill the asparagus on each side just to mark it, 1 or 2 minutes per side. Remove from the grill. Serve warm or at room temperature. Or, you can just broil them till they start to brown, 3 to 4 minutes.
