Recipe: Lamb cutlets, eggplant puree and tomato olive salad

I made this lamb cutlet recipe for dinner the other day and we had them with a fresh tomato and olive salad and some eggplant baba ganoush I prepared earilier. You can get some pre-made baba ganoush to save time of course.

I fried the lamb cutlets using Heston Blumenthal’s method, which involves turning the meat over frequently rather than cooking on each side for equal amount of time and turning only once. This distributes the heat more evenly making sure you have a well cooked yet juicy tender centre. Resting the meat for half its cooking time is still essential to trap all the juices in and keep the meat moist.

Ingredients

Go to Baba ganoush recipe to make beforehand.

  • 8-9 French-trimmed lamb cutlets
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika (sweet paprika is also fine)
  • 1 tsp ground coriander seeds
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • A pinch of cracked pepper

Tomato & Olive salad

  • 1 punnet of cherry tomatoes (about 2 cups), cut in halves
  • 6-7 Kalamata olives cut in quarters
  • 1/2 small Spanish onion, finely diced
  • 1 tbsp chopped parsley
  • 1 tbsp olive
  • 1 tbsp Apple Balsamic Vinegar or Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Pinch of sald and pepper

Instructions

  1. Mix spices, salt, pepper, olive oil and tomato paste and rub all over lamb cutlets. Marinade for at least 20 minutes at room temperature. If marinating overnight in the fridge, bring to room temperature before cooking (about 15-20 minutes).
  2. Heat a large frying pan or grill to high and fry lamb cutlets for 1 1/2 minutes on each side, turning twice and then for a further 1 minute on each side, a total of 4 minutes on each side. Set aside for 2-3 minutes before serving.
  3. Mix all salad ingredients together and serve with lamb cutlets and eggplant purée, aka baba ganoush.

    This was absolutely delicious! My partner was almost licking the plate clean! The only thing I added was a light yoghurt dressing with lemon juice, fresh mint, garlic and tabasco. The whole dish was so full of flavour and extremely easy to make. Thank you Irley :o) Loving the website for inspiration every day

  • I love using chorizo to flavour dishes. Pork goes very nicely with prawns and squid and I like the vegetables used in this dish.

  • Marie Rose dressing is a British condiment – mayo and ketchup mixed together To make it paleo friendly I suggest to make your own mayo using olive oil or find a commercial one using olive or worst case sunflower oil, basically avoid canola or soybean as much as possible. This recipe however, calls for yogurt instead. Just use normal full fat variety and instead of ketchup use some tomato paste.

  • This is a bit of a prawn ceviche dish but you could easily grill the prawns after marinating if you’re not sure about eating them raw. Great fibre source salad.

  • Everyone’s favourite meatballs with a difference – no meat! Fresh fish is used, which together with Sicilian herbs and spices creates a light and fresh dish.

  • Make it Paleo: This recipe contains dairy such as butter and cream, both of which are high fat content and low lactose so perhaps you can get away with it. Otherwise you can probably use ghee and no cream, which will make it a bit thinner in consistency but the flavour of the mushrooms will still be amazing. Beef fillet and standard mushrooms can be used instead and you can add some dried porcini mushrooms for that wild forest flavour.

  • You don’t really need to dust the meat with flour as you can thicken the sauce with a little tapioca flour or through evaporation method (aka cook with no lid on for the last hour). Peeled white potatoes are fine in small amounts but feel free to replace with sweet potato, swedes, parsnips or throw in zucchini and cauliflower in the last hour.

  • Use ghee instead of butter if avoiding all dairy (although butter is pretty much fat with hardly any lactose left). Higher-welfare just means free range.

  • Even when I'm on holidays, I find a way to cook. I just miss it too much. We've been making our own breaky and lunches while staying in the climbing campsite in Turkey. For dinner, we've been eating whatever the local chef cooks for everyone and it's been delicious and inspiring. #turkey #food #travel #digitalnomad #antalya #cooking #eatdrinkpaleo
