Pan Fried Little Gem Lettuce


1 tablespoon butter

3 Little Gem lettuce, sliced in half lengthwise

1 lemon



Smoked paprika

Parmesan cheese, grated


  1. Heat a large skillet over high heat and melt the butter. Swirl the butter in the skillet. Add the lettuce halves cut side down and reduce heat to medium, cover, and cook for 3-4 minutes or until cut sides have browned and lettuce has just started to wilt.
  2. Meanwhile, cut the lemon in half crosswise and remove the seeds. When the lettuce is done, turn off the heat and remove it from the pan onto a plate.
  3. Squeeze a little lemon juice in the pan. Swirl, and pour over the lettuce. Sprinkle the lettuce with salt, pepper, smoked paprika and grated parmesan cheese. Serve warm.
