Lamb Cutlets with Brazil Nut and Mint Sauce

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

Sherry vinegar

8 to 10 lamb cutlets

Lemon wedges to serve

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
