Let’s prepare the asparagus

  1. Rinse the asparagus under cool water
  2. Cut the bottoms off each asparagus stock above the purplish section
  3. Prepare a pan with tin foil and lay the asparagus on the tinfoil

  5. Next, add the fresh ground pepper
  6. Sprinkle some sea salt
  7. Sprinkle some lemon juice
  8. Preheat the oven to 375 °F
  9. Cook the asparagus for exactly 7 minutes

Get the grill fired up and close the lid to preheat 400 – 500 °F

  1. Place the tune on the grill for 2 minutes then flip
  2. Repeat above
  3. Flip again for 2 minutes
  4. Flip one last time for 2 minutes
  5. When a total of 8 minutes is up, remove the tuna from the grill so it doesn’t overcook
