Mediterranean Lamb, Aubergine and Bean Salad

The flavours and ideas are a mix of Greek and Spanish. You’ve got to dice the lamb yourself, it’s much juicier that way. Roll the bits in salt, rosemary and mint. Dice the eggplant, roll that in salt and rosemary, cook them seperately in olive oil, deglaze with fresh lime juice. Cook the beans, keep them whole but take off any stumpy bits. Let it cool a little and add diced tomatoes, kalamata olives, fetta and shaved parmesan. Make a dressing with the deglazed lime juice and vino cotto (or a good balsamic vinegar).

Crusty Lamb Pies

Cheap cuts or chops if you’ve got time to slice, buy it diced if you haven’t. Roll in flour, braise with garlic, onion and rosemary. Simmer on low heat for an hour with tomatoes and tomato paste. Blind bake the pastry base, add the (strained) filling (freeze the meat  juice for stock). Put the top layer on and sprinkle the lid with lots of sea salt and finely diced rosemary. Bake until crispy. Serve with mash and tomato sauce if you must.
