Lamb Cutlets with Romesco Sauce

Grilled Lamb Cutlets with Romesco Sauce

Romesco is a Spanish sauce from the region of Catalonia, where a variation called salvitxada is served as a dip for calçots, local spring onions traditionally charred over open fires; thick green onions or baby leeks make a good alternative. Since we’re talking Spain, Sherry is the perfect accompaniment, especially Barbadillo Oloroso which complements the sweet complexity of the romesco and the sweetness of the onions.

Serves 4

Ingredients
  • 12 lamb cutlets
  • 16 thick green onions or baby leeks
  • Extra virgin olive oil, for rubbing
  • Salt flakes, to taste
  • Romesco Sauce
  • Crusty bread, for serving
Method
  1. Preheat oven to 240ºC.
  2. Remove cutlets from the fridge 30 minutes or so before cooking to bring them to room temperature.
  3. Meanwhile, trim most of the green off the onions, leaving about 14cm above the bulb. Trim off the root, discard any wilted outer leaves, rinse, pat dry, rub well with oil and place in a baking dish in the oven for 30 minutes or so, until well coloured and tender, turning the overhead grill on for the last few minutes if necessary to make them slightly charred. This can be done while roasting vegetables for Romesco Sauce.
  4. Heat a char-grill pan or frying pan over medium–high heat.
  5. Rub cutlets with oil and sprinkle with salt.
  6. Cook for 3 minutes or so each side, until cooked to your liking.
  7. Serve with charred onions, Romesco Sauce and plenty of bread.

We made the pot-sticker dumplings and bang bang chicken – once again both exceeded our expectations. My husband keeps saying it’s better ordering this than going out to restaurants as the recipes and food quality are amazing.

I loved the Fresh & Easy Chicken – simple instructions, only a few ingredients and the time factor absolutely spot on. Then came the highlight, the taste, no compromise on the enjoyment of that meal! For the time poor Fresh & Easy hits the mark indeed.

Thank you for stocking our pantry with such authentic ingredients and quality produce ... I’ve so enjoyed picking fresh leaves from the herb pots and loved listening to the chef's playlist while cooking. We really like the flexibility of cooking over a couple of days and changing the order we cook the dishes in when we want to.

I am absolutely loving these boxes! There are ingredients I have never worked with before so having the confidence to try something new is so much fun! The recipes are just amazing and the notes on what can be prep’d beforehand are a great help too. Thank you so much.

Thanks so much for the Fresh & Easy Meal, it was excellent. We regularly get another meal kit delivery – your offering is vastly superior and a similar price, so big ticks.

I'm a competent cook whose learned so much from the Recipes+Videos Packs. The recipes are yummy and Roberta’s video guidance offers so many little tips to improve flavour and organise the flow of preparation. I enjoy her warmth, sense of humour, and ability to giggle at herself when she occasionally messes up.
