Lovely looking cutlets

Mise en place

  • Preheat the oven to 200° C (400° F - gas 6)


  1. Grind the pistachio nuts to a rough powder in a food processor with a metal blade. Pour the ground nuts into a shallow plate.
  2. Place lamb cutlets in a large bowl, drizzle over oil and add some sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Add tapenade and mix well with your hands. Roll the cutlets in the ground pistachio nuts to coat well. Transfer to a roasting tray.
  3. Put in the oven and cook for about 10 minutes, then turn cutlets over and cook for a further 10 minutes (the timing depends on thickness of cutlets and how well you like them cooked-cook for less or longer accordingly).
  4. Arrange on a serving plate and garnish with redcurrants, if you wish.
