2) Remove the prawns from the marinade and place on preheated griddle, turning only once, until curled and pink. Serve with the steak and salad.

For the salad:

2) Slice the heads of romaine lengthwise and brush with a little olive oil. Place on a preheated griddle and cook the lettuce, moving it around carefully, until charred and nice griddle marks form.

3) Remove the lettuce and tear into pieces. Place in a bowl with the onion and tomato and drizzle with the dressing.

4) Serve with the steak and prawns.

For the presentation:
1) Using a plate with a wide lip, place the griddled salad in the center. Then plate slices of steak and prawns alternating around the lip.
