Grilled Asparagus Salad With Shaved Parmesan
- 1 bunch asparagus
- 2 tbsps extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 tsp fleur de sel (sea salt)
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 8 basil leaves, torn
- a few pieces of shaved parmesan cheese
Preheat BBQ or grill pan to high heat. Trim woody stem off of asparagus (about 2 inches). Toss in 1 tbsp olive oil, 1/4 tsp each of salt and pepper. Place on hot grill and cook until gently charred on all sides (about 3 minutes) or until asparagus is tender.
Plate asparagus. Using a vegetable peeler, shave parmesan over the top of the salad. Drizzle with remaining olive oil and garnish with fleur de sel and basil leaves.
Try serving with a Sauvignon Blanc.
