Cardrona Valley lamb with potato, fennel salad & pesto


  • Mix together the lemon zest, cumin seeds, coriander, olive oil and 1 tbsp ground pepper. Then massage this mixture into the lamb and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour (overnight is even better).
  • When ready, season the lamb and cook to the desired degree on a preheated ridged grill (or BBQ). Remove and set aside to rest for about 8-10 mins, before slicing.
  • While the lamb is cooking, wash the potatoes and cook in plenty of lightly salted, boiling water. Drain well, set aside to cool and cut in half.
  • Then toss the potatoes with the yoghurt, mayonnaise, capers, fennel and parsley.
  • Serve the sliced lamb on a mound of potato salad, with a dollop of pesto and herbs on top, and the dressing sprinkled around the plate.
