  1. The lamb… Take the lamb out of the packaging and pat dry with a paper towel.  Slice into 2cm strips. Lightly coat with olive oil, season with salt, pepper, chilli flakes (if using) and coat well with the dukkah.
  2. The tabbouleh… Place the quinoa, water and a sprinkle of salt, pepper and zest of the lemon into a small pot and bring to the boil. Cover and turn the heat down to low. Cook for 10-15 minutes until all the water has been absorbed, then fluff it up with a fork and pop into a bowl.
  3. Heat up a frying pan to a high heat. Chop the beans into 1-2cm lengths. Quickly fry with a little olive with the sliced garlic until the beans have char marks, but still crunchy, set aside.
  4. Chop up the tomatoes and finely chop the parsley.
  5. Mix the beans, tomatoes and parsley through the quinoa. Dress the salad with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and a squeeze of lemon.
  6. The lamb… Heat the frying pan up again to a med-high heat with 2-3T of olive oil. Fry the lamb for 3 minutes on each side until crispy and golden.
  7. To finish… Serve the beautiful lamb in wraps, pita pockets or on its own with a big spoonful of tabbouleh and a dollop of yoghurt or sour cream.
  8. Serve, Eat, Enjoy!
