I love spring … although in South Florida that only means summer has come. And I adore asparagus… and as you know spring is the season for asparagus…

I love truffle oil and I love everything grilled… So, for all that and more, I decided to make grilled truffled asparagus. After having them, I must confess that I had never, ever, eaten asparagus as delicious as these ones… No doubt, these are the best grilled asparagus ever!

Seasoning with Truffle Oil and Tuscan Herbs

To season my asparagus I used Tuscan herbs. These herbs are the Italian equivalent of my favorites, the very delicious and aromatic herbs of Provence.

If you don’t have Tuscan herbs on hand, you can make your own blend. All you have to do is combine dry basil, oregano, parsley, rosemary, and thyme, in equal parts. Then, add some red pepper flakes to that mixture, and a pinch of sea salt and that’s it. A teaspoon of this blend is all you need to make your asparagus taste like heaven.

Another simpler, but equally delicious option is to season the asparagus with coarse sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. If you don’t have truffle oil on hand, you can substitute a good extra virgin olive oil.

The trick to getting your asparagus to its point is to first marinate them with the oil and herbs. Then you grill them quickly. How long do you cook asparagus on the grill? Or how long does it take to grill asparagus?

The idea is that they are tender but firm. As the nature of the asparagus is fragile, I like to roast them in a perforated grilling pan and for no more of 4-5 minutes, depending on the thickness of the spears.
