Zucchini-Wrapped Lamb Cutlets


12 lamb cutlets, French trimmed (ask your butcher to do this)
2-3 long zucchini
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon ground cumin
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tablespoon finely chopped rosemary
sea salt and freshly ground pepper


Combine all the ingredients except the lamb and zucchini in a shallow bowl. Brush the cutlets with the oil mixture.

Using a vegetable peeler, shave the zucchini into long strips. Place two strips on the bench with the ends overlapping to make one long strip. Season and wrap each cutlet in zucchini and secure with a toothpick. Brush the zucchini with the olive oil and season. Grill on a preheated barbecue for 2-3 minutes each side or until cooked to your liking. Arrange on a platter with the Chickpea, Fennel and Artichoke Salad with Lemon and Date Dressing.
