This is great in summer on the barbie but a griddle on the hob still does it justice – luckily!

Tip

Know-how
Dressed vegetable salads make great seasonal side dishes, and unlike salad leaves they don’t go limp. Although they can be made a few hours ahead and left at room temperature, always add any fresh herbs just before serving.

Method

  1. Season the lamb, then cook on a barbecue or hot griddle for 3-4 mins on each side or until done to your liking.

  2. Meanwhile, cook the peas in a large pan of boiling water for about 2 mins until just tender. Drain, then tip the hot peas into a bowl and toss with the olive oil, lemon juice and zest. Stir through the feta, mint and spring onions, then season to taste. Serve the peas with the lamb steaks.
