Give your lamb a real burst of flavour by coating it with a zesty garlic lamb marinade. The mix of garlic, limes, orange and cumin will bring your taste buds alive!
- 8 lean lamb cutlets or 4 lamb loin chops
- For the garlic marinade
- 60ml olive or vegetable oil
- Grated zest and juice of 2 oranges
- Juice of 1 lime
- 10ml ground cumin
- 3 garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped
- 15ml hot pepper sauce
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.
Remove the cutlets or chops from the marinade (reserve the marinade) and cook on a prepared barbecue or under a preheated moderate grill for 6-8 minutes on each side. Meanwhile, heat the marinade in a small pan until piping hot and pour over the chops before serving.
Serve the lamb with the quinoa and sugar snap pea salad.
For that extra special Latin effect try adding 30ml/2tbsp Tequilla to the marinade
