Buttered Lettuce Toasted Almonds Recipe

I am currently on a trip in Copenhagen, Denmark. I am working for the next two weeks at restaurant Kadeau to learn about Nordic cuisine. It’s a privilege for me to work with such a creative team.

The other night one of our hosts, Thomas, made this amazing side dish of cooked lettuce. It’s simply lettuce seared a few minutes in butter, drizzled with apple cider vinegar, and topped with a few almonds. I thought it would be nice to share the recipe with you. Ideally you would use romaine hearts split in half, but smaller, baby lettuces also work.
