Sound tasty? Want to know more? Then please read on ...
Medium handful of fresh rosemary
1 garlic clove
4 tbsp. ground almonds
1½ tbsp. oil
2 x 150g lamb leg steaks
180g cherry tomatoes
2 tsp Dijon mustard
40g mixed salad leaves
1. Preheat the oven to 200C/gas mark 6.
2. To make the rosemary crust, finely chop the rosemary (removing the stalks) and the garlic. Zest the half lemon. In a bowl, mix the ground almonds with the rosemary, garlic, lemon zest and ½ tbsp. of the olive oil. Season with sea salt and black pepper and set aside.
3. Peel and cut the parsnips into very thin ‘shoestring’ fries, 5mm thick. Place these in a bowl with a pinch of sea salt and ¼ tbsp. olive oil, toss to coat and spread out on a baking tray. Place in the oven for 15-20 mins, turning halfway through, until golden and turning crispy.4. Meanwhile, heat a frying pan with ½ tbsp. oil on a medium-high heat and fry the lamb steaks for 2-3 mins on each side until browned. Place on a baking tray and spoon over the rosemary crust. Place in the oven for 7-10 mins until cooked.
To make the salad; cut the cherry tomatoes in half. In a bowl, mix ¼ tbsp. olive oil with the mustard and the juice from the half lemon. Add the cherry tomatoes and the mixed salad leaves and stir to combine.
Serve the rosemary crusted lamb on two warm plates, alongside the parsnip shoestring fries and the cherry tomato salad.
Lamb makes a tasty dish, it can be a little expensive, so do keep your eye open for any special deals your supermarket or Farmer's Market may have - I know I do!

I can't afford lamb these days, but will try those parsnip fries. Valerie
This is a different take on traditional lamb dishes. I love it.
It sounds good.
This looks SO good. Must try it.
Buena receta. Tiene muy buena pinta y parece facil de hacer.
...the parsnip fries look good.
Yummy. Too bad lamb has gotten so expensive. It's been years since I had some.
Oh, Jan. Those fries sound delicious.
The fries look so good, as does the lamb.
Sure looks good. Rosemary is a spice that like and use.
This looks wonderful Jan, I'm adding this to my list. Thank you and enjoy the rest of your week :)
Looks and sounds delish.xx
What a delicious post, that looks so yummy. I'm glad I already ate because this is making my mouth water. Thanks for sharing it.Have a great week!
This crust sounds tasty!
A keeper, Jan :) Thank you!
Love lamb and often buy it to use in various ways.
Not sure I could come at those parsnips :)
I kid you not: They had parsnips at our supermarket Monday and I stood there thinking, what can you do with them? Now I know (when I was home I´d all forgotten about it). Thank you! Not so sure about lamb, though. Isn´t this rather very strong in taste, I wonder.
I am loving the idea of the parsnip fries, they would work well with any dish.
I love lamb and you had me at fries. Saving this one.
Mmmm... this looks simply wonderful, my friend! I have never had lamb, but this recipe has me wanting to try it :)
Enjoy the remainder of your week. Hugs!
Love this idea, never heard of parsnip fries but need to try them I love their earthy flavor.Nice coating for that lamb also,bet it wousd be good on pork also
That's a beautiful plate of food! I've never cooked lamb myself, only tried it when others made it, usually for Easter. I use parsnips all the time in soups but would like to try this recipe for them!
Mmmmmmmm.......love lamb......yammie. 💕💕
I honestly don't like lamb, but I would try this! LOL!
I must get myself some lamb chops next time I'm out doing my shopping. I meant to buy some of Monday, but changed my mind for some unknown reason!!
Mmmm... I really do like Lamb- it's so rare that I eat it! So tasty though, esp with this lovely-looking crust!
Parsnips are a much neglected veg. Delicious in so many ways and inexpensive. Easy to prep and to cook for even the beginner.
