Ingredients 

    •   Smoked Merlot Salt
    •   Ottoman spice blend, 2 tabelspoons
    •   12-16 lamb cutlets
    •   Extra virgin olive oil 
    •   Juice of 1/2 a lemon
    •   A few sprigs of thyme and rosemary - leaves picked and finely chopped
    •   2 garlic cloves, crushed

 

Method

      1. Pre-heat the BBQ or oven grill on high. In a large mixing bowl, combine the Ottoman with a generous lug of olive oil, the garlic, lemon juice and herbs to create a paste. Add the lamb and cover with the marinade on all sides. Let marinate for at least 1 hour or 2 hours if possible.
      2. Grill the lamb cutlets for 3-5 minutes on each side depending on your preference (cooking appliances can differ so check during grilling to ensure it doesn't over cook). 
      3. Sprinkle the lamb with some Smoked Merlot Salt and serve on a bed of humous or tahini with your favourite side. Great with all kinds of greens, fresh salad, coleslaw or chips.  

Enjoy!
