  • 1 clove Garlic, minced on a microplane
  • 3 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil, plus extra for drizzling
  • Kosher Salt
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Step 1

Combine bread crumbs, shallot, garlic, and 2 tablespoons olive oil in heavy-bottomed 12-inch skillet. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring and tossing occasionally until bread crumbs are golden brown. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer to small bowl and set aside.


  • 1 12 pounds Asparagus, trimmed and peeled if necessary

Toss asparagus with remaining tablespoon olive oil in large bowl and season with salt and pepper. Grill asparagus over a prepared hot grill or grill pan set over high heat until charred in spots and tender-crisp. Return to bowl and toss with half of breadcrumbs and juice of half the lemon. Transfer to a serving platter, top with remaining breadcrumbs, and serve with remaining half lemon, cut into wedges.
