Grilled Asparagus Spears

A quick and easy recipe that makes a great side to any grilled meat.

1 1/2 pounds fresh asparagus spears
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 cloves garlic, pressed
1 teaspoon dried oregano
salt, to taste
pepper, to taste

Clean the asparagus and snap the tough ends off.
Mix together the oil, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper; set aside.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and add the asparagus spears.
Cook for 3 minutes, remove from heat, drain and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process.
Gently pat the asparagus spears dry.
Place the asparagus on a baking sheet and drizzle with the oil mixture.
Gently toss this together making sure the spears are well coated.
Remove the asparagus form the baking sheet and grill over medium-high heat, rolling them back and forth with the back of a spatula, until you have nice grill marks on them, about 5 minutes, depending on how thick the spears are.
