  • 8 lean lamb cutlets or 4 lamb loin chops
  • For the garlic marinade

  • Grated zest and juice of 2 oranges
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Salt
  • 10ml ground cumin
  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped

  • To prepare the marinade; in a large shallow non-metallic dish mix add all the ingredients together. Place the cutlets or chops in the marinade mixture and coat well on both sides. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours, or if time allows overnight.
