Preparation

1
Prepare dressing by mixing all ingredients well (see about below).

Crisp the prosciutto slices under a broiler, watching carefully as it burns easily. Blot with paper towel and set aside.
3
Rub dressing on all sides of the Ice Burg, let stand to absorb the flavours.

About

I had this idea over the weekend to make a deconstructed Caesar Salad and it turned out much better than I ever thought. What's a little different with this one is that I grilled the Ice burg lettuce (normally Ice burgs are not welcome in our home, but for this occasion we allowed it!)
Dressing:
* 1/4 cup lemon juice
* 1 large + 1 small clove garlic minced finely or microplaned
* a couple of drops of fish sauce (from Thai stores)
* 2-3 tbso EV olive oil
* Sea salt and pepper to taste
