    • 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
    • Salt
    • 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.
