Ask your SuperValu butcher to bone out the lamb loins for you.
Serves: 4 people
1 pinch Black Pepper
100 g Frozen Peas
100 g Honey
1 - Onion
2 tbsp Rapeseed Oil
1 pinch Salt
2 - SuperValu Fresh Irish Lamb Loin
boned out (approx. 600g)
4 sprigs SuperValu Fresh Rosemary
leaves stripped and chopped
1. Preheat the oven to 160°C/gas mark 3.
2. Season the lamb all over with some of the rosemary and a pinch of salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a heavy-based ovenproof frying pan set over a high heat. When it’s very hot, add the lamb to the pan to seal it all over. (This helps to keep the juices in when you cook it in the oven.)
3. Transfer the lamb to the oven in the frying pan and roast for about 10 minutes, depending on how you like it cooked. If you like your lamb well done, leave it in for a further 6 minutes. Take the pan from the oven and set aside for about 10 minutes, loosely covered with foil to keep it warm.
4. Meanwhile, heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in a separate frying pan set over a medium heat. Add the onion and cook for about 5 minutes, then add the remaining rosemary along with the honey and peas and bring to the boil, then remove from the heat.
5. To serve, cut the lamb into slices and divide between four plates, then pour over the honey and peas.
TIP You could use vegetable stock instead of honey.
