Garnishing Ideas

¾ cups shelled peas / pea shoots / fresh mint leaves to garnish

10 slices prosciutto


Pre-heat oven to 200 degs. Rub lamb racks generously with combined CHEF Lamb Liquid Concentrate and mint jelly, season well. Arrange in a single layer in a lined roasting tray and cook for 20-25 minutes or until cooked to required doneness. Allow to rest before slicing.

For the Jus, heat olive oil in a large saucepan and sauté celery, carrot, onion, garlic, until caramelised, add tomatoes, mint leaves and lamb stock and simmer for 20 minutes. Strain and add port wine jelly and reduce until syrupy (alternatively thicken with arrowroot or cornflour) season to taste and keep warm.

Meanwhile, cook parsnip and potatoes in plenty of boiling salted water until tender. Add peas and simmer 1 minute then drain well and puree together with butter and seasoning until smooth.

Cook prosciutto slices in a single layer under the grill for 2-3 minutes until crispy and golden.

Serve lamb sliced into cutlets with parsnip and pea puree, and a scatter of peas and shoots. Finish with a drizzle of jus and a prosciutto shard.
