I love having go to dishes like this! Especially in the summer or when you don't feel like planning out a menu they are so handy! And how could you not love veggies coated in lemon and butter goodness?!

So do you absolutely love your big green egg!? I don't think we have stopped grilling since we got one! Anyway, I'm obsessed with this asparagus, but that lemon butter is the icing on top! Love it!
    Becky Hardin

Asparagus is my favorite spring vegetable too! And this looks great. I need to get myself one of those green eggs!
Erin @ Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts
Asparagus is my favorite! Love that lemon butter!
Susan
I can see why this is your favorite side dish: simple but with interesting flavor that would go nicely with the asparagus. Hopefully I can get my husband to grill it when I got to make it… (he's the griller in the family)
Rebecca Andrews
Asparagus sounds delicious. I do a version in the oven. Got to have that recipe for ?Chicken pockets, shown in the picture with the asparagus! Looks like fresh mozz, fresh basil and tomato slice. Also looks delicioius and and elegant dinner party item!

I love pretty much any veggie on the grill, and this asparagus doesn't look like it would be an exception. Love how the simle preparation would let the flavor shine through!
Patricia @ Grab a Plate
We love grilled asparagus in my house! In fact, we eat it so often it's a little crazy. Your platter of asparagus looks scrumptious!
Michelle | A Dish of Daily Life
This is so up my alley! I love asparagus with lemon...I make it that way all the time. Usually I roast it though, rather than grilling. But now that the grill is out again, I think we'll have to start grilling it more. Why heat up the kitchen?!
Michelle | A Latte Food
I love lemon on my veggies! These look crazy good--love that they're grilled!
