Spicy Lamb Cutlets Recipe with Cherry Tomato Salsa


This lamb cutlets recipe is one of my favourites when BBQ season arrives. Barbecuing the cutlets really brings out the lamb’s sweetness and the spicy aromas of the homemade spice mix.

For best results, let the lamb rest for a while once cooked – this gives a moister and more tender meat. Serve with fresh coriander sprinkled over your potatoes for an extra twist.

Serves 6


3 tbsp olive oil
120g/12 lamb cutlets, well trimmed

Spice Mix
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Tomato Salsa
150g/½ cucumber, chopped
120g/10 cherry tomatoes,
50g/10 spring onions (green part only), finely chopped
1 chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
Juice of 1 lemon
3 tbsp garlic-infused olive oil
2 tbsp chopped fresh coriander
To serve: boiled new potatoes, chopped fresh coriander


1. Preheat the grill or a barbecue to 170°C.
2. Mix all the salsa ingredients and a pinch of salt and pepper together in a large bowl. Set aside to let the flavours infuse.
3. Combine all the spice mix ingredients and tip out into a shallow bowl or plate.
4. Drizzle the olive oil over the lamb cutlets, then dip each cutlet in the spice mix and shake off the excess.
5. Grill or barbecue the cutlets for 3–4 minutes on each side.
6. Serve the cutlets with a side of salsa and boiled new potatoes garnished with chopped fresh coriander.
