Ingredients

Serves 4

  • 4 lamb steaks or side loin chops
  • 1 mango
  • ½ cucumber, deseeded
  • ½ bunch of scallions
  • 1 red chilli
  • 1 passion fruit
  • 2 limes
  • 2 tbsp fish sauce
  • 2 tbsp garlic-infused olive oil
  • salt and pepper

Method

Step 1

Chop the flesh of the mango and cucumber into small pieces. Slice the scallions (the white section and ¾ of the green). Deseed the chilli and chop very finely. Place everything into a small mixing bowl.


Step 2

Cut the passion fruit in half and empty the juice and seeds into the mixing bowl using a small spoon. Add the finely grated zest of 1 lime and 4 tbsp of lime juice. Add the fish sauce, mix and season to taste. Cover and leave to rest in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.


Step 3

Take the lamb out of the fridge 30 minutes in advance of cooking. Pre-heat a frying pan on a high heat. Brush the lamb with garlic-infused olive oil, season with salt and pepper and place in the pan. Cook for 2 minutes on each side, then reduce the heat and continue to cook depending on your preference and the thickness of the cut.


Step 4

Serve with the salsa and crusty bread.


Chef's Tip

The salsa needs to be left to rest so the flavours can mix and develop, and also to create a crunchy-soft effect.
