Grilled Radicchio

Grilled Radicchio: Main Image

Quick Facts

Servings: 4
Bitter radicchio mellows as it cooks with a garlicky marinade, but it keeps its distinctive bite. Delicious with grilled fish or marinated, grilled tofu. It also works a first course for a fancy meal.

Ingredients

  • 2 whole heads of radicchio
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • 2 Tbs fresh basil, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp salt (sea salt if on a corn-free diet*)
  • Basil leaves for garnish

Directions

  • Cut radicchio heads into quarters, and place in a shallow dish.
  • Place remaining ingredients (except for basil for garnish) into a small dish. Pour over radicchio quarters. Marinate for 15–30 minutes.
  • Preheat charcoal or gas grill.
  • Place each quarter of radicchio on grill and cook, turning with tongs. The radicchio will wilt somewhat, and turn brown at the edges.
  • Remove from heat and pour remaining marinade over the wilted and slightly browned radicchio. Arrange basil leaves in an attractive pattern around the radicchio.

* Allergy notes: People following a corn-free diet should avoid iodized salt since it contains dextrose, which should be avoided by those allergic to corn.
