Time: 30 minutes plus preheat time
2 1/2 to 3 lbs asparagus, trimmed and peeled
2 tablespoons 274th Sicilian Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Sale di Cervia Sea Salt to taste
1. Preheat the oven to 450°F, preheat the broiler or a gas grill, or start a charcoal or wood fire. If you're roasting or broiling, place the asparagus in a roasting pan and drizzle with a tablespoon or two of 274th Sicilian Extra Virgin Olive Oil; sprinkle with Cervia Sea Salt. If you're grilling, brush the asparagus with 274th Olive Oil and sprinkle with Cervia Salt. Place in the oven, under the broiler, or on the grill.
2. Roast or grill, turning the spears once or twice, just until the thick part of the stalks can be pierced with a knife, 10 to 15 minutes. Broiling time will be shorter, taking 5 to 10 minutes total. Serve immediately or at room temperature, with lemon wedges
