Easy Broiled Asparagus (AIP, SCD)

  • Author: Jaime Hartman
  • Total Time: 13 mins
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


This is the fastest and most delicious way I know to prepare asparagus, while also retaining much of the high nutrient value.


  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • coarse sea salt


  1. If asparagus has tough woody ends, snap them off and discard.
  2. Spread asparagus spears on a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and then toss to coat evening and redistribute in a single layer. Sprinkle lightly with sea salt.
  3. Place oven rack about 4 inches underneath broiler element. Preheat broiler.
  4. Broil asparagus in oven for 4-8 minutes, watching closely to make sure it turns bright green and develops some light blistering but does not char. If your broiler has both a low and high heat setting, you might prefer to start it on low and then increase to high for just the last minute or two.
  5. Remove from oven. Let sit for 2 or 3 minutes and then serve.
