Easy Broiled Asparagus

The perfect, easy side dish recipe ready in just 10 minutes. You only need three simple ingredients: olive oil, garlic salt, and asparagus.

This is one of our favorite side dishes to throw together. By broiling the asparagus, it cooks up super quick – so fast and easy that we can set the table while these little guys are cooking. 
Even the pickiest of eaters love this side dish, and it’s a great way to introduce new veggies to younger kids, too.
If you have thinner stalks, it will cook in about 5-6 minutes (like the recipe states), but thicker stalks will take about 8 minutes to cook. It chars slightly for the perfect crunch and tenderness.

Picking the best asparagus

The freshest asparagus stalks are firm, usually bright green stems, with a little bit of white at the bottom.

You’ll want to make sure that the stalks are not limp and the tops of the spears are not too dark or wrinkled. You’ll want to use the asparagus quickly – it only stores well for up to 3 days in the refrigerator.

How to make broiled asparagus

Set your oven to high broil (you’ll want to make sure that the rack is at the top of the oven). Trim the ends of the asparagus by cutting them off or snapping them off.

Spread asparagus on a baking sheet. We usually line it with aluminum foil to make for an easier clean up.

Drizzle olive oil over the asparagus, then shake garlic salt over the top.

With your hands, roll and toss the asparagus so each piece is covered evenly with the oil and salt. Spread asparagus on the sheet evenly so that they are not overlapping.


Broil for 5-6 minutes if you have thinner stalks, 7-8 minutes if you have thicker stalks.

  1. I love asparagus and usually boil mine, but I've never thought to broil it. How delicious that sounds. By the way, I made your No-Bake Peanut Butter Bars last week (with a little twist), then revamped it and turned it into Muddy Buddy covered truffles. I loved them both ways.
