Char-grilled lamb with zucchini, feta and dill


You'll need

16 lamb cutlets (60gm each) 1 tsp dried oregano 250 ml (1 cup) Greek extra-virgin olive oil 1 tbsp olive oil 4 zucchini, thinly sliced 100 gm Greek feta, coarsely crumbled ¼ cup (loosely packed) dill, coarsely torn

Method

  • 01
  • Place cutlets in a single layer in a non-reactive dish. Scatter over oregano, season with freshly ground black pepper and pour over extra-virgin olive oil. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate to marinate, turning occasionally (6 hours-overnight).
  • 02
  • Preheat a large char-grill over high heat. Remove lamb cutlets from marinade (discard marinade) and grill, turning once, until cooked to your liking (3-5 minutes for medium-rare). Cover loosely with foil to keep warm and set aside to rest.
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large frying pan over high heat, add zucchini and sauté until golden (3-5 minutes). Add feta, season to taste and serve with cutlets, scattered with dill.
This recipe is from the March 2010 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.

“I would love to learn the secret to the delicious lamb cutlets at Pireaus Blues in Fitzroy, Vic. Eating them makes me feel as though I might be Greek, after all.”
Steve Burgess, Fitzroy, Vic
