Coat a bunch of asparagus with about 2 tablespoons olive oil and put on a 400 degree F grill for about 5 to 10 minutes with the lid on, turning occasionally and checking for doneness (you can put the asparagus on a foil sheet if you wish). Top with flaked Maldon sea salt and, if desired, crumbled cheese, toasted nuts or seeds, chopped herbs (marjoram, thyme, oregano), or fresh lemon juice. If you don't use a grill, 20 minutes in a baking dish in the oven at 400 degrees F will work. The asparagus still should have a light crunch when eaten.
