Grilled Asparagus with Parmesan Curls

Ingredients
2
tablespoons olive oil
1/2
teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel (set aside)
2
tablespoons lemon juice
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1
ounce Parmesan cheese or Manchego cheese
 
Freshly ground black pepper (optional)

Directions

  1. In a covered large skillet, cook asparagus in a small amount of boiling water for 3 minutes; drain. Meanwhile, for marinade: In a 2-quart rectangular baking dish, combine oil, lemon juice, salt, and the 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add asparagus, stirring to coat. Cover and marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes. Drain asparagus, discarding marinade. Place asparagus on a grill tray or in a grill basket.
  2. For a charcoal grill, place asparagus on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals. Grill for 3 to 5 minutes or until asparagus is tender and starting to brown, turning once halfway through grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place asparagus on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.)
  3. Arrange asparagus on a serving platter. Working over asparagus, use a cheese plane or vegetable peeler to cut thin, wide strips from the side of cheese block. Sprinkle asparagus with lemon peel and, if desired, additional pepper. Makes 6 servings.
