547 calories / serving Ingredients
2 tsp fennel seeds
2 tsp coriander seeds
2 tsp cumin seeds
2 tbsp hazelnuts, toasted and chopped
2 tbsp sesame seeds
8 finest* hand-cut lamb chops
250g (8oz) couscous
1/2 lemon, zested and squeezed
300ml (1/2pt) hot vegetable stock
2 tbsp fresh mint, chopped
1 tbsp fresh coriander, chopped
Preheat the grill to high. Dry fry the fennel seeds, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, hazelnuts and sesame seeds over a medium heat for 2-3 minutes. Tip into a pestle and mortar, season and grind to a coarse mix.
Drizzle the lamb chops with a little oil, then press the seed mix evenly into both sides of the chops. Grill for 3-4 minutes each side, or until still slightly pink in the middle, then let them rest for a few minutes.
Tip the couscous into a large bowl, add the lemon zest, a drizzle of olive oil, season and pour over enough stock to cover the couscous. Cover with cling film and leave for 3-4 minutes. Fluff up with a fork, then stir through the mint and coriander along with the lemon juice. Serve with the chops.
