The basic skills of roasting and grilling asparagus are found in our Cook Asparagus section but here we bring together our range of recipes that take those basic techniques and add other ingrediants to create some delicious raosted and grilled asparagus recipes for all sorts of occasions.
Asparagus Rolls (Asparagus & Stilton tucked up in chicken and bacon & roasted to perfection)
Each grilled asparagus recipe you find here is quick and easy but lends itself to a little experimentation. You may be thinking of cooking on an outdoor grill or under an indoor grill. Some of the recipes will work better using one method or another. Or you may plan on griddling on an indoor griddle. Follow the recipes then try adding your own variations.
For an indoor grill
Serves 4 as an appetizer
20 to 30 asparagus spears (about 1lb)
4 oz Stilton Blue Cheese
Snap the ends off the asparagus spears and set out on the grill tray close together
Drizzle with a little olive oil (go easy not too much)
Grill under a hot grill until the spears are just turning golden
Turn placing them back on the grill wires sitting very close to each other
Sprinkle a very fine layer of stilton crumbs over the asparagus and place back under the grill
When the stilton is bubbling nicely remove from the grill and place on serving plates
Eat immediately with light crusty rolls or just as it is without any additions.
