Directions

Step 1

In a small bowl mix together butter, lemon zest, thyme, salt and pepper.
Place the butter mixture on a piece of plastic wrap and roll into a cylinder with the diameter of a silver dollar.
Chill the butter for 30 minutes or until firm enough to cut.
Preheat grill to high heat 475°F-500°F (246°C-260°C). Oil grill to prevent sticking.
Place asparagus on a tray. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Step 2

Place the asparagus on the grill and cook for 1-2 minutes (depending on size) or until the asparagus turns bright green and has golden char marks. Turn the asparagus several times during cooking. Remove asparagus from grill and divide into 2 bunches. Slice the butter into rounds and place on top of one bunch of hot grilled asparagus. Place the remaining asparagus in the refrigerator for 15-30 minutes or until well chilled.

Step 3

Remove asparagus from the refrigerator and top with pine nuts, feta cheese and finish with a drizzle of fresh lemon juice.
