Wild Garlic is a beautiful seasonal ingredient that we adore using in the short time it is available, especially with lamb! We’ve used it in vivid green salsa to top smokey lamb steak in yet another of our beloved taco recipes. The wild garlic brings all of the beautiful perfume you get from garlic without the aggressive heat, and it works wonderfully in this fresh green salsa.

½ tsp Dried Oregano

20ml Olive Oil

METHOD

THE SALSA

 

Place the coriander, parsley, wild garlic and chilli into a food processor and blitz until thoroughly minced. With the blade spinning, slowly add in the olive oil followed by the lime juice until an even salsa is achieved. Season the salsa with salt and pepper, adding more oil or lime juice if necessary.

 

THE LAMB

 

Add the ground spices, dried oregano and lime zest to the lamb, ensuring its is seasoned all over before adding the olive oil. Allow the lamb to marinate for at least 1 hour. Make sure to remove the lamb from the fridge 20 minutes before cooking.

 

To cook the lamb, place a griddle pan over a medium-high heat and allow to heat up. Place the lamb steaks onto the griddle pan and cook for 5 minutes on each side until cooked through to your liking. Allow the lamb to rest for 5 minutes before slicing.

 

TO SERVE

 

Serve the lamb immediately with the wild garlic salsa, warmed corn tortillas, pickled onion, crumbled feta and some lime wedges and coriander.
