These succulent lamb cutlets are offset beautifully by the crunch and sweet fl avour of the salad.

Lamb Cutlets With Pomegranate Salad


Main Dish

  • 6 lamb chops
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • Salt and pepper


  • 20 pecans
  • 1 cup pumpkin or squash
  • 1 tbs lard (see recipe, page 133)
  • 2 large handfuls mixed salad greens, washed
  • 1 small pomegranate, seeds removed and retained
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 tbs white wine vinegar
  • Salt and pepper


  • Pre-heat the oven to 350ºF. Place the pecans on a roasting tray and roast in the oven for 5-10 minutes. Watch them carefully as they can burn quickly. Remove once they have roasted and slightly changed colour. Cool and set aside.
  • Cut the pumpkin into cubes. Place in a large bowl. Melt 1 tablespoon of lard and pour over the pumpkin, then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Mix well. Place the pumpkin on a tray lined with baking paper and roast until cooked through and golden. This may take 30–45 minutes depending on your oven. Remove and cool slightly.
  • Cover your lamb cutlets with oil, salt and pepper. Next, heat your BBQ or grill on a medium-high heat. Place the cutlets on the BBQ and cook to your liking. Remove from the heat, cover lightly with foil and rest for half the cooking time. For example, if you cooked your cutlets for 5 minutes, rest them for 2 ½ minutes.
  • In a large bowl, mix the salad leaves, pomegranate seeds, pecans and pumpkin. In a small bowl, mix the olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper, then drizzle over the salad and toss well to combine.
  • Serve the cutlets warm with a portion of the salad.
