My philosophy is that you can grill anything. But when it comes to smaller, skinnier foods, grilling them can be a little challenging. 

I’m sure we’ve all lost a shrimp and asparagus or two between the grill grates. To help harness runaway food, I use Reynolds Wrap® Non-Stick Aluminum Foil.

For the asparagus, I sliced off the woody ends and cut the stalks into about 2-inch pieces. You would never be able to grill these the traditional way. The shrimp are peeled and deveined. 

The lemon-garlic butter sauce is a classic blend that goes fantastic with both the shrimp and asparagus. You’ll pour half on the shrimp and half on the asparagus. This way, you can reuse the asparagus bowl when everything is done cooking.

Reynolds Wrap® Non-Stick Aluminum Foil is a great tool for grilling. After preheating your grill at medium/medium-high heat, place two sheets of foil directly on the grill—the dull side with the watermark should always be facing the food to benefit from the non-stick properties.

Then, just add the shrimp and asparagus right on top of the foil. Everything grills in less than 10 minutes. 

Reynolds Wrap® makes prepping, cooking and cleaning easy. If you didn’t use foil, not only would the small asparagus pieces slip through the grates, but all of that butter would end up on your grill, making cleanup a mess.

After the shrimp are pink and the asparagus is tender, combine them in a bowl and serve with some white rice and lemon wedges.
