2 heads of romaine lettuce, cut lengthwise to result in 4 halves 3 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil, separated 1 lemon, halved Salt and freshly ground black pepper Shaved parmesan cheese for garnish

Heat clean grill to medium-high. Brush both sides of the romaine halves with half of the olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Place the lemon halves on the grill to sear while you grill the romaine. Place the romaine, cut side down for 3 minutes, pressing with your tongs to ensure they get direct heat all over. Flip and grill them on the other side for another 2 minutes. Remove the lemon and grilled romaine from the grill. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste and drizzle with the remaining olive oil. Carefully squeeze the grilled lemon juice over the romaine. Sprinkle each half with shaved parmesan and serve.
