Lamb Cutlets with Parmesan Cheese

Finally got to use some of the herbs from the little herb garden I planted a couple of weeks ago (& it is little!). I served this with asian greens but you could easily serve it with couscous, mashed potato or a simple green salad. 
(serves 2)
Takes 30 minutes
  • 6 lamb cutlets, trimmed
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • olive oil
  • salt & pepper
  • 2 tbsp fresh oregano & thyme leaves
  • 6 slices parmesan or feta (or cheese of choice, I wouldn't go too strong though as you don't want the cheese to be the star of the dish) 
  1. Preheat oven grill to high.
  2. Place lamb cutlets into a baking dish and drizzle with olive oil & squeeze over lemon juice. Grind over a healthy serving of pepper and a pinch of salt.
  3. Grill for 2-3 minutes depending on size of cutlets. You want a slight colour on the lamb.
  4. Turn over and sprinkle with fresh herbs & top each cutlet with a slice or two of cheese. Grill until cheese has browned - few minutes on high.
  5. Turn oven to bake (keep on high temperature) & cook for 5-10 minutes.
  6. Serve with asian greens or a salad. Enjoy!
