This recipe takes cutlets to a whole new level with the addition of a textured, nutty crust. Paired with a warm salad we think this is the perfect light meal that won't have you slaving away hours in the kitchen.

Method

To Make Lamb

To Serve

1

Place the flour on a plate, the breadcrumbs on another and the egg mixture in a shallow bowl.

2

Stir the almonds and parsley through the breadcrumbs and season.

3

Coat each cutlet in the flour, shaking off the excess.

4

Dip in the egg mixture, then place in the breadcrumbs.

5

Gently pat down on each side, ensuring that the cutlets are well coated.

6

Place on a large plate as you go.

7

Heat a large frying pan over medium heat.

8

Add enough oil to just cover the base of the pan.

9

As soon as the oil is hot (test oil is hot by dropping in a few crumbs – they should sizzle in the hot oil), add half of the lamb cutlets and cook for 3 minutes until golden brown, then turn and cook for a further 1 minute until golden brown.

10

Remove, drain on crumpled kitchen paper.

11

Repeat with remaining lamb cutlets.
