RECIPE: Olive Tapenade Crunch Lamb

This week we share a recipe to a delicious Olive Tapenade Crunch Lamb served with an Olive, Fig & Baby Mozzarella Salad.This recipe featured on season 2 of Disney’s locally produced live action show Disney’s Cookabout.

This previous season had the contestants cooking dishes that drew inspiration from specially chosen ingredients and recreating delicious and healthy recipes from around the world. The contestants visited locations around Cape Town to discover where the food on our tables come from. On their visit to Hillcrest Olive Farm in Durbanville the contestants learnt all about growing and pitting different varieties of olives before replicating this delightful dish.

Ingredients (serves 2)
4 trimmed lamb cutlets (chops)
15 ml olive tapenade
50 ml flour
2 eggs (beaten)
150 ml breadcrumbs
15 g finely grated parmesan cheese
salt and pepper for seasoning only
20 ml olive oil
120 g baby figs (halved)
20 g baby salad leaves
60 g kalamata olives
90 g bocconcini cheese (baby mozzarella)
½ avocado (peeled and sliced)
7,5 ml reduced balsamic vinegar

Method
Spread the olive tapenade evenly over the lamb cutlets.
Mix together the breadcrumbs & grated parmesan cheese and place on a plate.
Coat the lamb cutlets with flour, shake off excess flour and then dip into the egg mixture
Coat the lamb cutlets with the breadcrumb mixture.
Heat 15 ml of the olive oil in a frying pan on medium heat and cook the lamb cutlets about 5 minutes on each side. Drain on paper towel.
While the lamb cutlets cook – make the salad by combining the figs, salad leaves, olives, avocado slices and the bocconcini cheese.
Drizzle 5 ml olive oil and reduced balsamic vinegar over the salad.
