Grilled Romaine with Lemon and Parmesan Cheese
Here's a fun spin on regular salad. If you do not have a grill or just are in a rush, a grill pan or broiler will do a great job. Both the grilling and Iris spice give it a great crunch and depth.
Lior Lev Sercarz
3 whole romaine heads, washed and cut in half lengthwise
2 tablespoons Iris N9 spice
1 lemon, zest and juices separated
1/3 cup grated Parmesan
1/2 cup croutons of your choice
Preheat your grill or grill pan. Drizzle the romaine with olive oil, season with salt, peperoncino and half of the Iris spice.
In a bowl mix the lemon juice, lemon zest, remaining Iris spice and add enough olive oil to obtain a dressing. Season with salt and peperoncino to taste.
Grill the romaine for about 2 minutes on each side and then place them on a serving plate. Drizzle the dressing on top and then sprinkle the Parmesan on top. Sprinkle the croutons on top and around and serve. Enjoy.
*If you do not have a grill you can easily use a grill pan for this recipe or just a cast iron pan. Or heat the broiler to high and broil them (watch closely!)
Variations & Ideas:
Replace the romaine with radicchio.
