  • 30 Asparagus spears
  • 1 tablespoon Olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Black pepper powder
  • 1/2 cup Chimichurri sauce

    6. Remove the asparagus in a plate
  2. Coat with Chimichurri sauce and grill / roast again

    3. Put the chimichurri sauce-coated asparagus spears back on the grill or roasting pan.
    4. Roast for another 1 minute on high heat - stirring just 1-2 times.
    5. Remove from heat and serve while hot
