Method

  1. Using a pestle and mortar, mash the garlic and cumin together with a pinch of salt. Stir in the lemon juice and olive oil. Pour over the lamb in a dish, toss to coat, then marinate for about 1 hr. To make the salsa, mix all the ingredients together in a bowl, then set aside.
  2. Griddle or barbecue the lamb for 4 mins on each side until pink, or a few mins more if you prefer. Leave the lamb to rest for 4-5 mins, then serve on a board or platter with the bowl of salsa for spooning over.

I haven't tried the lamb part to this recipe but I can honestly say the salsa is the best I've ever tried and now make double quantities for every BBQ we have and serve it as a salad
