Drizzle or spray olive oil over the skewered asparagus. Freshly grind pepper over the spears. I like using roasted garlic olive oil.
When your grill is hot proceed to grill these tasty spears.
Place lemons cut side down on top of the grill and lightly grill.
Cook asparagus until tender and prosciutto crisps, about 3-5 minutes per side. Cook lemon halves until lightly browned, about 2-3 minutes.
Remove asparagus from the grill when cooked and squeeze with lemon juice and top with lemon zest.
This makes a wonderful appetizer or side dish.
