Dukkah-dusted Lamb Steak Burgers

Cut lamb across the grain into thin slices. Brush each slice with oil and sprinkle with dukkah. Pan-fry in a dash of oil in a hot frying pan or on a BBQ hot plate for about 1 minute each side. Rest before serving on mini burger buns with some of the accompaniments suggested above.

Sticky Ribs

Preheat the oven to 180ºC or 160ºC fan-bake. Line a shallow-sided baking tray with two layers of foil. Arrange the lamb ribs or chops in a single layer on the prepared tray. Mix together the soy sauce, brown sugar, tomato sauce and ginger and pour over the chops. Cover with a lid, baking paper or foil.

Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes, basting the ribs occasionally with the marinade. Remove the cover and cook for a further 10 -15 minutes or until the ribs are glistening under the marinade and well cooked.

Sage and Anchovy Lamb Cutlets

Mix the olive oil, anchovies, sage and garlic together and place in a sealable bag with the lamb cutlets. Seal, massage and allow to marinate for 20 minutes. Alternatively, refrigerate overnight.

Grill the cutlets on a moderately-hot BBQ or in a hot frying pan for about 2-3 minutes each side. Rest a few moments before serving.

Lamb Crostini

Preheat the grill to 190ºC. Brush the bread slices with olive oil and grill on both sides until golden. Toss together the
lamb, cheese, tomatoes, parsley or basil, garlic, olive oil and vinegar. Season well with pepper. Pile onto the crostini and grill until the cheese softens.

Lamb and Mushroom Kebabs

Cut the lamb into even 2cm dice and place in a sealable plastic bag with the mushrooms.

Pour in the wine, oil and vinegar and add the rosemary, garlic, shallot and pepper and seal. Massage to coat evenly and set aside at room temperature for 20 minutes. Alternatively, refrigerate overnight. Thread 3-4 pieces of lamb onto short, well-soaked, bamboo skewers alternating with the mushrooms and basil leaves if wished.

BBQ on a well-greased hotplate for about 8 -10 minutes, turning regularly to ensure even cooking. Serve as nibbles, or a main course with your favourite salad vegetables.
