Cracked black pepper, fresh dill, and minced garlic swirl into melted butter to drizzle over fresh asparagus spears. The simple side dish reigns supreme over other grilled asparagus recipes thanks to a final coating of Parmesan cheese.

pound asparagus spears
tablespoons butter, melted
tablespoon snipped fresh dill or 1 teaspoon dried dill
clove garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper
Finely shredded Parmesan cheese
Snap off and discard woody bases from asparagus. On a platter, drizzle asparagus with butter and sprinkle with dill, garlic, and pepper. Toss to combine.
For a charcoal grill, placeasparagus on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals. Grill for 7 to 10 minutes or until asparagus is crisp-tender, rolling asparagus occasionally to ensure even cooking. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place asparagus on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as directed.)
To serve, transfer asparagus to a serving dish. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
