This is a great way to prepare lamb, from the seasoning used on the lamb, to the sauce served with it, it is really delicious. The recipe does call for lamb chops but I had some backstraps (fillets) to use up so made it with these instead. The lamb was beautifully tender and we loved the lemon pepper seasoning on them. I served ours over couscous and poured the sauce over the lamb and it was enjoyed by all. I have made several recipes from this chef before and I am never disappointed and this one is no exception. I loved how easy these was to prepare as well a really great recipe that I am sure you will enjoy. To read more reviews on this recipe or to see more photos please click here.

This is very versatile it can be served as a main course with a salad for a light, healthy summer time meal or it can be served as a appetizer, or as part of a buffet style meal along with other dishes. I have made this a few times now both as a main and also as part of a BBQ when I had 40 people over, it is always received well. I have listed the weight below as 1kg and I feel this would serve 4-5 as a main with a nice green salad and some crusty bread and about 10 as an appetizer or as part of a buffet style meal.
