Spiced lamb cutlets with peach salad recipe

One of the most delicious ways to serve Coles lamb cutlets is with punchy spices like cumin, paprika and fennel. The strong and spicy flavours of the cutlets are then complemented with a light peach and asparagus salad. Grilled to bring out their natural sweetness, the peaches are tossed together with peppery rocket, tangy and creamy goat's cheese, and a light vinaigrette. You’ll love the combo of sweet peaches and savoury and spicy lamb in this dish. It’s the perfect warm-weather lunch or dinner. Read on for tips on the best way to cook lamb cutlets, including how long to cook lamb cutlets so they are slightly crispy on the outside and succulent on the inside.

How to perfectly cook this lamb cutlets recipe

Follow these tips on how to cook lamb cutlets to perfection:

  • Allow the cutlets to sit out at room temperature for 20-30 minutes prior to searing.

  • When cooking lamb cutlets in a frying pan, cook fat-side down on high heat until the fat turns a golden colour. You may need to hold the cutlet up with a pair of tongs to do this. Then cook the flat sides of the cutlets for 2 minutes on each side. This will get you a medium cooked lamb. Sear for 2 minutes per side if you like your meat well done. Rest the cutlets on a plate for 10 minutes.

Assembling the peach salad for this lamb cutlet recipe

While you can use a barbeque or grill to cook the peaches, you can also use a cast iron or grill pan. Cook over medium heat for 3-4 minutes on each side. Instead of grilling the asparagus, toss them in oil and place them on a baking tray in the oven at 220°C for 7-10 minutes. Wash and dry the rocket well to remove excess water so the salad doesn’t end up soggy. And as for the cheese, you can either go for creamy and soft goat’s cheese or crumbly hard goat’s cheese.
