Lamb cutlets are one of my favorite things! This sauce is based on a Jamie Oliver recipe ‘Lamb Cutlets with
Special Basil Sauce’
However, I experimented with ingredients I had in hand.
Handful of brazil nuts
Bunch of mint
Small amount of parsley leaves
Good olive oil
8 to 10 lamb cutlets
Lemon wedges to serve
- In a mortar and pestle, crush and grind nuts until a paste forms, add a little oil to help this along. Add mint and parsley and crush until incorporated into paste, start to add oil to desired consistency is reached, leave a little thinker than required. Add vinegar to taste. Season.
- Grill or Pan Fry Cutlets to your liking (I prefer medium). Serve with sauce ,lemon and any salads or vegetables to make a meal.
I left it a bit chunky this time, so it was more of pesto.
