  • 3-4 Coastal Lamb backstraps
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin


Green beans and walnut salad

  • 300g green beans
  • 30g butter, melted
  • 100g walnut halves, toasted
  • half small red onion, finely sliced
  • ¼ cup coriander leaves



Brush the lamb with combined sesame oil and hoisin. Preheat a non-stick pan to moderately hot. Keep the heat at moderately high.

Cook one side of lamb until the first sign of moisture appears on the uncooked side, turn and cook other side. You may need to turn the meat three times so all sides are browned.

Test for doneness with tongs. Rare is soft when pressed, medium is springy and well done is very firm. Rest the lamb for a few minutes before serving. To serve, slice the lamb diagonally and serve on top of warm salad.


To make the salad

Cook the beans until just tender, toss with the butter, toasted walnuts, onion and coriander leaves, serve immediately.
