Ingredients

1 Romaine lettuce 550 g
4 tsp olive oil 20 mL
1 clove garlic, whole
4 tsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed 1/2 lemon
ground pepper to taste [optional]
salt [optional]

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the garlic and sauté 1 min with stirring just to flavour the oil. Remove the garlic and discard. Set aside the oil.
  2. Wash the romaine lettuce, then pat dry. Cut each lettuce in half lenghtwise.
  3. Heat the grill to medium. Brush the cut sides of the romaine lettuces evenly with 1 teaspoon of the infused oil. Carefully place each piece on grill, cut side down and cook for about 5 min or until lettuce is light brown; remove from grill and place on a platter. Alternatively, preheat the broiler. Put the lettuce halves on the rack of a broiler pan, 7-10 cm from the heat. Broil them about 5 min.
  4. Drizzle grilled lettuce with lemon juice, rest of garlic infused oil, salt and pepper. Serve.
