8 Quality Mark lamb loin chops
1 1/2 cups Basmati rice
1 tbsp olive oil
1 red onion
2 garlic cloves
juice and grated zest of 1 lemon
2 sprigs fresh rosemary
2 1/2 cups chicken stock
1 garlic clove
3 anchovy fillets
1 tsp capers
2 large handfuls of parsley
juice of 1 lemon
To Make Dish
Put the rice in a bowl and cover with water. Set aside.
Heat one tablespoon oil in a heavy-based saucepan and sauté the onion and garlic for a few minutes until softened.
Drain the rice, add to the pan along with the lemon zest and rosemary and stir together well.
Pour in the stock, bring to a very gentle simmer, cover and cook on the lowest heat for 10-12 minutes, until all the liquid is absorbed.
Turn the heat off and leave covered, while you cook the lamb.
Season the cutlets well with salt and pepper and grill for 3-4 minutes each side or until cooked to your liking.
Cover with foil and leave to rest for 2-3 minutes.
Meanwhile, blitz all the salsa ingredients in a food processor, or chop the ingredients into small dice and use a pestle and mortar to grind together.
Taste and add a touch more lemon juice if desired. Season and set aside.
Season the rice, separate the grains with a fork and serve with the chops.
Spoon over the salsa and enjoy with a salad.
