"Asparagus is my new favorite vegetable and I love the zip of capers. This combination works well on the grill or can be made by broiling in the oven. I like my spears crisp and almost burnt, so adjust your cooking time to how thick the spears are and how you like them!"

I love grilled asparagus.....I too like those crispy charred pieces! I grilled these with some shrimp and scallop skewers and dinner was ready in 15 minutes. You can't beat that! Love the capers in the sauce....just make sure you have a good sharp knife because those tiny capers are hard to chop. Anyone have a trick for that? Loved the asparagus and will make it often.
