Yields: 4 servings
Cook time: 10 minutes Prep time: 4 1/4 hours


  • 1 bunch asparagus trimmed and peeled, if needed
  • chili oil to taste
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste


  • 1 stalk lemongrass minced, (optional)
  • 1 Thai red chili minced
  • 1 lime
  • 2 cloves garlic peeled, crushed
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce


  1. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add the asparagus and cook for 2 minutes (depending on size). Remove and shock in ice water to stop cooking.
  2. Cut lime in half and squeeze juice from 1/2 of a lime into a gallon-size GLAD® storage bag. Reserve the other half of the lime to use as a garnish later. Add remaining marinade ingredients to the bag, seal and shake. Add cooled asparagus, reseal bag and refrigerate for 4 hours to marinate.
  3. Preheat the grill using Kingsford® charcoal, until the briquets are consistently ashed over.
  4. When grill is medium hot, remove asparagus from marinade, reserving liquid. Place asparagus on grill and baste frequently with the marinade. Grill until desired char or grill marks are acquired.
  5. Remove asparagus from grill and serve immediately with a drizzle of chili oil and a lime wedge.
