    Place asparagus spears on grill at right angles so they won’t fall through. Grill over medium heat for 2 minutes on one side. Roll over and continue grilling for another 2 minutes, or until you reach the level of doneness you prefer.

    Remove from barbecue. Whisk together lime juice and oil, sprinkle on cooked asparagus, and serve.

    Serves 4.
