Per serving: 571kcals, 43.5g fat (12.6g saturated), 35.8g protein, 9.8g carbs, 3.9g sugar, 0.4g salt


  • 8-12 lamb chops (depending on how many people you are feeding)
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 250g shelled broad beans, skins removed
  • 2 tbsp roughly chopped fresh mint leaves
  • 3 sprigs fresh rosemary, leaves picked and finely chopped, plus
  • 1 extra sprig to griddle
  • Bunch (50g) of watercress

For the salsa

  • 2 ripe medium avocados
  • 200g cherry tomatoes
  • 1 red bird’s eye chilli, finely chopped
  • Juice of 2 small limes
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped


  1. For the salsa, peel and roughly chop or squash the avocados and roughly chop the tomatoes. Put in a bowl with all the remaining salsa ingredients and mix well.
  2. Preheat a griddle pan until hot. Season the lamb chops well with salt and black pepper. Brush with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and griddle over a high heat for 2 minutes each side (pop the extra sprig of rosemary on the griddle for more flavour). Remove from the pan and rest for 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, warm the remaining olive oil in a frying pan, add the broad beans and toss for 3 minutes, until warmed through. Remove from the heat and simply stir through the chopped herbs and watercress.
  4. Serve a spoonful of bean mix on a plate, with the lamb chops on top, then a spoonful of the chilled salsa on top of them.
