Summer = BBQ.
BBQ = ausome, regardless of age. In fact, when you start grilling shit yourself, the process becomes even more ausomer exponentially.
Therefore, summer = ausome, regardless of age.
Today, I will leave you with a recipe for something that’s very summery in a Japanese-y way: bacon wrapped asparagus! It is a Japanese pub staple, this skewered morsel of unctuous badass-ness.
Sure, you can walk into a yakitori joint and drop 3 bones for a skewer… OR you can buy a bunch of fresh asparagus and a pack of bacon for under 5 bones and then stuff your face with the porcine deliciousness that is bacon (and then later, deal with the folic acid funk that is asparagus pee).
You will need:
1 bunch asparagus (thicker ones would be easier to skewer)
1/2 pack of bacon
a bunch of bamboo skewers
and little bit of patience
Preheat your grill. Soak bamboo skewers in water for at least 15 minutes, so that it won’t burn off in the grill.
While you’re waiting for it to soak, cut up your asparagus into 1 1/2~2 inch chunks. Cut bacon slices into halves.
Take two pieces of asparagus and half a slice of bacon. Wrap. Skewer carefully because bacon fat will melt in your hands and make you slimy.
Nice collection! You can do this a day ahead if you’re planning to do a big BBQ shindig.
Turn on your favorite BBQ song. BLAST IT.
Then get to work. Grill over medium heat, until bacon is crispy.
DRAMATIC ENHANCE! (nosh with other carnage, grilled corm cobs, and beer)
