Method

To Make Dish

1

Put the rice in a bowl and cover with water. Set aside.

2

Heat one tablespoon oil in a heavy-based saucepan and sauté the onion and garlic for a few minutes until softened.

3

Drain the rice, add to the pan along with the lemon zest and rosemary and stir together well.

4

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.

5

Turn the heat off and leave covered, while you cook the lamb.

6

Season the cutlets well with salt and pepper and grill for 3-4 minutes each side or until cooked to your liking.

7

Cover with foil and leave to rest for 2-3 minutes.

8

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.

9

Taste and add a touch more lemon juice if desired. Season and set aside.

10

Season the rice, separate the grains with a fork and serve with the chops.

11

Spoon over the salsa and enjoy with a salad.
