Ingredients

  • 6 New Zealand lamb cutlets, French-trimmed
  • A pinch of ground cumin
  • 150g couscous
  • The juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • A handful pomegranate seeds
  • 100g feta, crumbled
  • A few fresh mint leaves, shredded
  • 50g natural yogurt
  • A squeeze of lemon juice
  • Flatbreads, to serve

Method

  1. Preheat the grill to high. Season the lamb and dust each side with a pinch of ground cumin. Cook on a grill pan under the grill for 2-3 minutes each side, until browned but still pink in the middle, then remove and rest.
  2. Meanwhile, put the couscous into a bowl, pour over 200ml boiling water, cover and leave to stand for 10 minutes. Fluff up with a fork, then season and stir in the juice of 1 lemon, 2 tbsp olive oil, pomegranate seeds, feta and a few fresh mint leaves.
  3. Pile spoonfuls onto plates and top with the grilled lamb. Mix natural yogurt with the lemon juice and a few more shredded fresh mint leaves and put in small pots to serve on the side. Accompany with flatbreads, if you like.
