Preparation: 15 mins 
Cooking: 15 mins

Serves 4

4 boneless lamb leg steaks

50g shelled unsalted pistachio nuts

50g rocket leaves

50g freshly grated Parmesan cheese

100ml olive oil

Salt and pepper

Extra olive oil, for frying

  • 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 steamed potatoes or fresh pasta.

Chef's 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.
