Grilled Asparagus

1 lb asparagus
 1-2 Tbsp olive oil
Sea salt

 Preheat your grill for high, direct heat. Prepare the asparagus by breaking or cutting off any tough bottom ends. Place the asparagus in a pan (to contain the spears while you put them on and take them off the grill). Coat them with olive oil and sprinkle sea salt over them. Grill the asparagus spears for 5-10 minutes, until nicely charred and just fork tender, turning them every few minutes so that they brown relatively evenly. Remove from grill and serve.
