  1. Mix the oregano, olive oil, lemon juice and 1/2 tsp flaky sea salt in a large bowl and season well with ground black pepper. Put a spoonful of the dressing in a second bowl, add the lamb steaks and turn to coat. Marinate for 5 mins.

  2. Heat a griddle pan over a medium-high heat, or set the grill to its hottest setting. Discard the marinade and cook the lamb on the griddle or grill for 4-5 mins each side or until done to your liking. Transfer to a plate and cover loosely with foil. Leave to rest for 3-5 mins, then slice thickly.

  3. While the lamb is resting, add the tomatoes, cucumber and olives to the dressing in the large bowl and toss lightly. Divide between 4 plates and top with small chunks of feta. Place the sliced lamb on top, scatter with the mint leaves and serve.

This is delicious! It is quick and easy. It is pretty low calorie and on the small side, so I served some new potatoes with it too. We cooked the lamb so it was still pink the in middle. Lovely!
