Spicy lamb cutlets with crispy coriander potatoes

spicy lamb cutlets with crispy coriander potatoes

Serves 4

  • 8 quality lamb cutlets

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, plus extra for the lamb

  • sea salt

  • 1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 dried chilli, finely sliced

  • 1 small handful fresh thyme leaves

  • 1 kg waxy red potatoes

  • 2 tablespoons coriander seeds

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 small glass red wine

  • 1 large cabbage, shredded

  • juice of 1 lemon

  • extra virgin olive oil

Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/gas 6. Drizzle the cutlets with olive oil and sprinkle over a pinch of salt, the black pepper, chilli and the thyme leaves. Give the cutlets a good rub to massage in the flavours, then put to the side.



Cut the potatoes into large, even-sized chunks and place in a pan of cold, salted water. Bring to the boil and cook for 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and leave to steam dry. Meanwhile, crush the coriander seeds lightly in a pestle and mortar.



Tip the potatoes into a large roasting tray and crush them slightly with your thumb. Sprinkle over the crushed coriander seeds and the cinnamon. Drizzle over the olive oil and pour in the red wine. Toss to coat the potatoes, then roast for 45 minutes, turning them half way through.



While the potatoes are in the oven, cook the cabbage for 10 minutes in a large pan of boiling, salted water. Get a griddle pan nice and hot and griddle the cutlets to your liking for 5 to 8 minutes, turning them halfway through.



Drain the cabbage and tip back into the pan. Squeeze over the lemon juice, drizzle over a little extra virgin olive oil and season. Serve the cutlets with the coriander potatoes and the lemony cabbage.



Tip: These tasty coriander potatoes are also great with pork chops or chicken.

Nutritional Information Amount per serving:

Calories

Calories are just a unit of energy. If you eat more than you use you can gain weight, or lose it if you don't eat enough. How much you need depends on your weight, gender and how active you are, but it's around 2,000 a day.

Carbs

Carbs are a great source of energy and, excluding foods such as potatoes, are made from grains - like bread, pasta and cereal. We all need carbs, but try to make them all wholegrain by sticking to brown bread, rice and pasta - they are much more nutritious.

Sugar

We all deserve a treat sometimes, but try to limit your sugar intake. Most of your sugar should come from raw fruit and milk, because they give us lots of nutrients too. Always check food labels so you know how much sugar you're eating.

Fat

We all need to eat a small amount of fat because it protects our organs and helps us grow. But we need to be careful about how much fat we eat and what kinds of fat, because in higher levels it's associated with weight gain, diabetes, cancer and heart disease.

Saturates

Saturated or "bad fats" are in beef, pork, chicken skin, butter, cream and cheese. Too much can be bad for our heart and cholesterol levels, but unsaturated or "good fats" in fish, nuts, avocados and some oils can help keep our hearts healthy if eaten in moderation.

Protein

Protein helps our muscles to grow and repair, as well as providing you with essential amino acids. When it comes to protein, try to eat leaner sources such as chicken and fish or non-meat sources such as eggs, dairy, beans, nuts, seeds, tofu and pulses.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH

Close

Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.

When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
