This recipe oozes with summer freshness.  

Preparation: 15 mins 
Cooking: 15 mins
Ingredients

Ingredients to serve 4

4 boneless lamb leg steaks

50 g unsalted pistachio nuts

50 g rocket leaves

50 g freshly grated Parmesan cheese

100 ml olive oil

Salt and pepper

Extra olive oil, for frying

Method
  • Remove the meat from the fridge 30 minutes before cooking.
  • Dry roast the pistachio nuts briefly in a non-stick frying pan.
  • Put the rocket into a blender; add the pistachio nuts and the Parmesan cheese, olive oil and salt and pepper. Blend until you have a chunky pesto sauce.
  • Heat up the griddle pan (or a non-stick frying pan). Brush the steaks with remaining olive oil. Cook for 6-8 minutes on each side.  Leave to rest for 2 minutes.
  • Place a small spoonful of pesto on each of the steaks and serve the rest of the pesto separately. Serve with halved grilled tomatoes and fresh pasta.

Tip: Don't blend your pesto too much; the small pieces of pistachio nuts will add a fabulous crunchy texture that is very different from ready-made pesto sauces.
