If cooking indoors, heat a grill pan over high heat or preheat the broiler until hot, then place the asparagus skewers in the grill pan or under the broiler about 4 inches from the heat. If using an outdoor grill, you want it medium-hot, rather than super-fierce — you should be able to hold your palm about 6 inches above the coals for a few seconds. Grill the asparagus spears for about 3 minutes on each side, depending on thickness, until tender in the center and lightly charred on the outside.

Whisk the remaining 2 tablespoons oil with the lemon juice, some pepper, and the mint to make a dressing. Remove the asparagus from the skewers, arrange on a plate and trickle the dressing over them. Sprinkle with flaky salt and shave some cheese over the top, if you like.
