Makes: 16


2 racks of Ovation lamb (approx. 800g)
2 tbsp. smoked paprika
Salt and pepper

2 lemons, zested
Juice of 1 lemon
1/2 cup fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
1/4 cup fresh Italian parsley, finely chopped
1/2 cup pistachio nuts, roughly chopped
4 garlic cloves, crushed
4 tbsp. olive oil
1/2 tsp. salt

50 g pomegranate seeds


Preheat a BBQ grill to smoking hot and also preheat the oven to 200ºC.

Season the lamb with smoked paprika, salt and pepper.

To make the gremolata combine all the ingredients (except pomegranate) in a bowl and mix.

On the hot BBQ, sear the lamb on all sides until caramelised and then place into the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and rest for 15 minutes before carving the lamb into cutlets.

Arrange on a plate and spoon over the Gremolata. Finally, sprinkle over the pomegranate seeds.
