Grilled romaine lettuce hearts is an easy way to eat more veggies and replace salad with way less effort. Yes, we are grilling green leaves. So, once you get over that part, next step is to talk about the magic sauce.

There is one secret ingredient you will either love (looking at you, Italians) or hate – anchovies. Don’t panic, you can skip it and still have the most flavourful grilled romaine hearts because garlic + olive oil. I used anchovy paste that comes in a tube because it’s convenient and lasts a lifetime in a fridge. You can use minced anchovy. Or skip it, don’t panic.
