BBQ rolled loin of lamb with olive & mint salsa

Method

  • Season the lamb, spray with oil and cook to the desired degree on a moderate preheated BBQ (or in the oven), covered, regularly turning. Remove and set aside to rest for a few minutes, before slicing.
  • To make the salsa, combine the olives, parsley, mint, capers, olive oil, red wine vinegar, ground pepper and orange zest. Taste for seasoning and set aside.
  • Blanch the beans in a pot of lightly salted, boiling water and drain well. Then toss with the butter.
  • To serve, arrange the beans on individual plates, place the sliced lamb on top and spoon a generous amount of the salsa down the centre.
  • nb. My lamb was wrapped in prosciutto – a plain loin is fine.
