  • 3 tbsp oil
  • 6-8 lamb loin chops



    A lamb is a sheep that is under 1 year old; between 1 and 2 years old you will find it sold as…

  • 50g roasted peanuts
  • 20g pack coriander, roughly chopped
  • 1 garlic clove


  1. Rub a little oil onto each side of the lamb, then season to taste with salt and pepper. Grill, barbecue or fry over medium-high heat for 5 mins, then turn over and cook 5 mins more for medium; 7 mins more for well done.

  2. While the meat is cooking, whizz together the rest of the ingredients with the remaining oil in a blender or with a mortar and pestle, to a rough paste. Serve the chops with the pesto drizzled over.

Simple but very tasty. Often have leftover coriander or herbs in my fridge so nice to make use of it.
