If there is ever a reason to eat in season, I believe it's this salad. Sweet young lamb fillet tops fiery rocket, tender broad beans and salty feta. Simple but always satisfies.

  • Lamb, Broad Bean and Rocket Salad with Mint and Feta
  •  
  • 4 lamb fillets or small backstraps
  • olive oil
  • freshly ground sea salt and pepper
  • 1 cup of broad beans, skins removed
  • 4 handfuls of fresh rocket, arugula leaves
  • a small bunch of fresh mint
  • 120 grams of feta, crumbled
  • the juice of one lemon
  • 2 tablespoons of best quality extra virgin olive oil
  1. Bring the lamb fillets to room temperature and pat dry.
  2. Season well with olive oil, salt and pepper.
  3. Heat a dry skillet over a medium-high flame and pan-fry the lamb fillets for 3 to 4 minutes each side, until medium-rare or to cooked your liking.
  4. Rest the meat in a warm place while you assemble the rest of the salad.
  5. In a small saucepan of water bring the broad beans to the boil, drain and refresh them in ice cold water.
  6. Arrange the rocket leaves on 4 serving plates.
  7. Slice the lamb thickly across the grain and place on top of the rocket leaves.
  8. Sprinkle over the drained broad beans, torn mint leaves, and crumbled feta.
  9. Lastly drizzle over lemon juice and a little extra virgin olive oil.
  10. Serves 4
