This recipe is my very own invention from the other day. The recipe is really very simple, the only important thing is to use good ingredients. I had got something delicious and fresh lamb, cut into dices, from the butcher, and I didn’t just knew what to do with it, so I just used my imagination.
Since lambs are Greeks speciality, so it was very natural to cook with inspiration taken from Greece. I made a marinade of olive oil, pressed garlic, rosemary and some the juice from a half citrus, which I put lamb pieces in. Then I put some foil over it, and put it in the fridge, so the meat could attract the taste of marinade.
Then I started to clean up some small new potatoes - I cleaned them thoroughly for the dirt, but let the skin be. (remember that much of the taste and all the good vitamins sit in the skin.). Then I cut the potatoes in half, so they had the same size as the meat. Then I took a zucchini and cut it into pieces, also the same size as the meat and the potatoes. Then I warmed up some olive-oil on the pan, and put the potatoes in, let them roast for a couple of minutes and add salt and pepper and rosemary. Then I warmed up other pan for the meat, and roasted the meat – be sure that not all the marinade gets into the pan, so that the meat can roast, and not boil in the oil! Just roast it until its tender – don’t over cook it – better to put it away from the warm and put some tin foil over until the potatoes are ready. Then I put the zucchini into the potatoes and let the roast to. When the potatoes were ready I mixed it with the meat, but a bit olive oil over, and that concluded the dish.
As a salad I made a rustic cucumber salad – what the greeks calls tzatziki, Theres is a lots of different versions of this salad, but this is my own simple recipe – impossible to fuck up. - Cut a cucumber into pieces, try them with a towel, throw them into some Greek Yoghurt , press some garlic into it, until you get the taste you like, and that’s it.
Lamb 33% potatoes 33% and Zucchini 33%
Rosemary, salt, pepper and oliveoil, citrus and garlic.
1 cucumber, garlic, and greek yoghurt.
