Grilled Romaine Lettuce with Anchovies and Pistachios


1 large head of romaine lettuce

½ cup toasted pistachio nuts

½ tin of salted anchovy fillets (15g drained)

2 tablespoons of EVOO

½ medium onion

2 tablespoons lemon juice

Zest from one lemon

Black pepper



Wash romaine lettuce and pat dry. Discard any old or wilted leaves.

Cut lettuce in half lengthwise.

In a mixing bowl, add lemon juice, lemon zest, pepper, and anchovies. Using a masher, mash this into a chunky sauce.

Massage the sauce onto the lettuce and place it on a baking sheet, with the cut side facing up. Put on a preheated grill on 200-220 C for 2-3min, or until the edges get slightly brown.

Transfer to a plate, sprinkle with dry roasted crushed pistachios, and serve immediately.

Serves 2 people.
