So simple to make, this is hardly a recipe. I think these are much nicer if they are given time to marinade, but you could cook them immediately if you were pushed for time.

I've used Tex-Mex mix as the spicy base for these, but any mix of spices would be fine. If using chili powder, just use a level teaspoon or they might be too hot.

And the best lamb fillet?


It comes from Russell' The Butchers, in Upwell. The best there is - I can even hear them in the mornings! Baaaa!
