Little Gem Lettuce Hearts (Sucrine) - 6 Pieces

HK$7500

We have run out of stock for this item.


Little Gem lettuce is best suited for both raw and cooked applications such as pan-frying or braising. When used fresh, the leaves can be torn and served as a salad, layered as a bed for meats and fish, or filled with a dip made up of fish, sauces, or chicken. The texture and subtle flavors of Gem lettuce are a perfect canvas for savory and bold companion ingredients and bright, fruity flavors. Gem lettuce also readily soaks up flavors, cuts fat, and holds sauces, vinaigrettes, and juices in the grooves of the leaves, similar to an edible sponge. When cooked, Gem lettuce can be sliced in half and lightly grilled and served with a citrus vinaigrette. Gem lettuce pairs well with citrus, tomatoes, radishes, asparagus, artichokes, chiles, fried or soft boiled eggs, fresh or aged goat and sheep's milk cheese, champagne vinegar, balsamic vinegar, cream-based dressings such as yogurt or buttermilk, dried fruits, apples, oranges, pears, melon, grapefruit, roasted chicken, bacon, shellfish, anchovies, smoked trout, herbs such as basil, cilantro, and dill and nuts such as pistachios, hazelnuts, walnuts, and pignolias. 

Country of Origin: Spain
