This recipe oozes with summer freshness.  

Preparation: 15 mins 
Cooking: 5 mins
Ingredients

Ingredients to serve 4

  • 4 boneless lamb leg steaks (approx. 600 g)
  • 50 g unsalted pistachio nuts
  • 50 g rocket
  • 50 g freshly grated hard cheese
  • 100 ml and 30 ml olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
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 cheese, 100 ml of olive oil and salt and pepper and blend until you have a chunky pesto sauce.
  • Heat up the barbecue, grill or a non-stick frying pan. Brush the steaks with remaining oil and cook for 1½  minutes on each side. Turn down the heat and cook according to taste and the thickness of the meat.
  • Season lightly with salt and pepper. Leave to rest for 2 minutes. Place a small spoonful of pesto on each of the lamb steaks and serve the rest of the pesto separately.
  • Accompany with grilled halved tomatoes and steamed potatoes or fresh pasta.

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