Gremolata crumbed lamb cutlets


  • Cut the lamb racks into cutlets, batten out a little and set aside.
  • Bring the stock to the boil in a small heavy-bottomed pot and cook until reduced by half. Then add the lemon juice, olives, 1 tbsp chopped parsley, the zest of 1 lemon and 1 knob butter. Mix well and briefly cook.
  • While the sauce is cooking, place the flour in a bowl and beat the milk and egg together in another one. Then combine the breadcrumbs with the remaining lemon zest, parsley, parmesan and seasonings in a third bowl.
  • Lightly coat the cutlets in flour, dip in the egg wash and then in the breadcrumbs.
  • Heat the oil with the remaining butter in a large non-stick pan and cook the cutlets until golden brown on all sides. Drain well on kitchen paper towels.
  • Place the cutlets on individual plates, spoon plenty of the sauce over the top and serve with your favourite potato dish on the side.
