Let summer linger a little longer with this Sicilian-inspired lamb dish. The delicate falvour of the lamb is perfectly complemented by the creamy mozzarella and brightened by the parsley sauce. Perfect for a midweek meal!

Method

To Make Lamb

To Make Zucchini

To Make Tomatoes

To Make Sauce

1

Place the pieces of lamb between 2 sheets of baking paper and bat with a meat mallet to flatten them a little more if necessary.

2

Remove the paper.

3

Place a slice of cheese on 1 side of each piece of lamb and push down lightly to join together (or you could use a little bit of egg wash to stick).

4

Place the flour, egg and breadcrumbs in three separate shallow bowls.

5

Coat a piece of lamb in the flour, shaking off excess, then dip in the egg and finally coat in the breadcrumbs.

6

Place on a baking tray and repeat with remaining pieces of lamb.

7

Cover and place in the fridge while you prepare the zucchini.

8

After finishing the rest of the method steps, heat a large frying pan over medium heat and add enough oil to cover the base. Once the oil is hot, add the lamb, cheese-side-up and cook for 3-4 minutes, turning once. If necessary cook in two batches.

9

Drain on crumpled kitchen paper and season.

10

Top the crumbed lamb with the zucchini and semi-dried tomatoes and pour parsley sauce on top.
