“This spring or summertime dish adds a touch of sophistication and kapow to grilling asparagus. It is based off of a sauce by Mean Chef, #41126, used with BBQ shrimp. The key lies in the contrast between seasoned, grilled aspargus and the subtle herbed cream. A possible variation would be to substitute cream cheese for goat cheese, though I have not tried it.”
