Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Brush the lettuce halves with 1 tbsp of the oil, then place on a baking tray and use a blowtorch to lightly char them all over. Heat the remaining oil in a frying pan, add the bacon lardons and fry until really crispy. Remove using a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper, leaving all the fat in the pan.

  • STEP 2

    To make the dressing, add the lemon juice to the pan with the bacon fat and stir, taste and season. Toss the lettuce, watercress and lardons together with the dressing in a large bowl, then arrange on a platter.
