Ingredients

  • 4 Taste the Difference Welsh Hill lamb cutlets
  • handful of fresh mint, plus extra to garnish
  • 1 garlic clove
  • zest and juice of ½ lemon
  • 1½ tbsp olive oil
  • 30g feta, to serve
For the risotto
  • 80g watercress
  • 800ml hot chicken stock, made with 1 stock pot or cube - use gluten-free stock if required
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely sliced
  • 200g risotto rice
  • 150ml white wine
  • zest of ½ lemon
  • 30g Parmesan, finely grated

Step by step

  1. Remove the lamb from the fridge at least 15 minutes before you start cooking. Put the mint, garlic, lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of the oil in a mini food processor and blitz to a purée. Put the lamb in a shallow bowl and season with salt and pepper, then add the marinade and toss to coat. Set aside while you make the risotto.
  2. For the risotto, put the watercress in a food processor with around 75-100ml of the stock and blitz to a purée. Set aside. Heat the olive oil in a pan and fry the onion and garlic for 4-5 minutes until soft, but not coloured. Add the risotto rice and stir to make sure all the grains are coated in oil. Add the wine and simmer until the wine has been absorbed. Ladle in some of the stock and simmer until it has been absorbed, stirring continuously. Repeat until the rice is almost cooked (20-25 minutes). Add the watercress purée, the lemon zest and Parmesan and continue to simmer until the rice is cooked through, while still retaining a bit of bite. Season to taste. Keep warm while you cook the lamb.
  3. Heat the remaining 1⁄2 tablespoon of oil in a shallow frying pan and fry the lamb for 3-4 minutes on each side, until cooked through to your liking.
  4. Divide the risotto between shallow bowls and top with the lamb. Scatter over the reserved mint and lemon zest and crumble over the feta.
