Asparagus

Yesterday I was shopping on the market and saw bunches of asparagus.  Not an unusual occurence, I admit.  However, I knew that we were having a bbq that evening and suddenly I wanted nothing more than fresh grilled asparagus and asparabacon. 

Now, the grilled asparagus has just been all over the place, as it should be because it’s delicious!  But asparabacon was something I used to eat in izakaya all over Japan and I love it!  I’ve only ever made it as part of a Japanese meal before but it transfers beautifully to the bbq.  It even works as finger food!

Hardly a recipe but here goes:

Grilled Asparagus:

1 bunch asparagus
olive oil

– Snap the tough ends off the asparagus. 
– Drizzle/spray with olive oil.
– Cook on bbq until just browned. 

Asparabacon:

1 bunch asparagus
~6 slices bacon

– Slice the bacon in half along the center giving thin, long strips. 
– Snap the tough ends off the asparagus. 
– Wrap the bacon round the asparagus in spirals. 
– Grill until the bacon is cooked and just starting to brown.
