Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (140g) Greek-style yoghurt
  • 6 tbs extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
  • 4 Coles Australian Lamb Forequarter Chops (about 200g each)
  • 2 lemons, rind finely grated, juiced
  • 1 tbs finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 bunches asparagus, woody ends trimmed
  • 8 spring onions, trimmed
  • 3 radishes, very thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup flat-leaf parsley sprigs
  • Lemon wedges, to serve

Method

STEP 1

In a medium bowl, whisk the yoghurt and 1 tbs of the oil with garlic, cumin, coriander, turmeric, 1 tsp sea salt flakes and ½ tsp freshly ground black pepper. Add the lamb and turn to coat. Set aside for 30 mins to develop the flavours.

STEP 2

Prepare a barbecue for medium-high heat. In a medium bowl, whisk the lemon rind, ⅓ cup (80ml) lemon juice, ⅓ cup (80ml) oil, chopped parsley, ¾ tsp salt and ¼ tsp pepper.

STEP 3

Remove the lamb from the yoghurt mixture and wipe off the excess. Barbecue the lamb for 5-6 mins each side or until browned on both sides and internal temperature is 54°C for medium-rare doneness. Transfer the lamb to a serving platter. Spoon half the lemon juice mixture over the lamb and set aside for 5 mins to rest.

STEP 4

While the lamb is resting, combine asparagus, spring onions and remaining 1 tbs of oil in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Barbecue the asparagus mixture, turning occasionally, for 4 mins or until the asparagus and spring onions are charred all over and asparagus is just tender.

STEP 5

Transfer the asparagus mixture to the serving platter with the lamb. Drizzle with remaining dressing. Top with the radish and parsley sprigs. Serve with the lemon wedges.
