Smoky Grilled Asparagus

“For my birthday this year, my parents got me an indoor grill. I love this grill! One of the first recipes I tried on it was this marinated asparagus recipe. The original recipe says to peel the asparagus stalks, but I missed that until just now and it still comes out good, but the flavor may soak in better if they are peeled.” – April Ferre
