What is that on the BBQ? Lettuce?

Ah, yet another attempt to recreate something from my beloved dinner at Zen Kitchen the other night: grilled romaine lettuce.

Yes, it sounds weird. My mom did a "say what?" when I told her about it. It's strange, but true. And oh so good!

So again we tried to re-create: I took a romaine heart and sliced it all the way down the centre lengthwise (sounds so cruel!). The most important part is resisting the urge to trim the bottom - don't!!! It holds the whole shebang intact! Submerge each half in a sink full of cold water - gently pull the leaves away to ensure its all clean in between. Shake out excess water and transfer to a 9x13 pan. Drizzle lemon garlic dressing on top. Let marinate for about 2 hours. Grill for about 4 minutes and serve!
