If barbecuing, allow the fire to die down. If using a ridged grill pan, heat to medium. Marinate the liver in a little olive oil with salt and pepper while you get everything else ready. If using the pancetta, grill this in advance and keep warm (wipe grill pan if using).
Grill the liver for 2–3 minutes on the first side. Do not attempt to move it until it is time for turning. Grill for 2 minutes on the other side. Serve with the grilled pancetta and lemon halves.
