4 3”–4”-wide and 1⁄2”-thick slices of fresh mozzarella
Salt and freshly ground pepper
4 large fresh lemon leaves
Extra-virgin olive oil
1 lemon, halved
1. Heat a flat pan over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Season mozzarella with salt and pepper to taste. Sandwich each slice between two lemon leaves and grill until cheese just begins to lose its shape, about 45 seconds. Carefully turn over and grill for 45 seconds more.
2. Place into a ceramic dish, taking care to keep the cheese between the leaves. Drizzle some extra-virgin olive oil over the top and place under the grill until the top is golden. Serve immediately.
