  • 1½ kg new potatoes, halved (or quartered depending on size)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large garlic clove, crushed
  • 2 preserved lemons (we used Belazu), flesh removed and skin finely chopped
  • 1 heaped tsp cumin seeds, crushed
  • 8 lamb chops
  • bunch mint, leaves chopped
  • peas or salad, to serve


  1. Put the potatoes in a large pan, cover with water, add a little salt and bring to the boil. Cook for 10-15 mins or until tender. Drain and set aside half for tomorrow. Return the rest of the potatoes to the drained pan with 1 tbsp of the oil, the garlic, preserved lemon and cumin. Keep warm while you cook the lamb.

  2. Rub the lamb chops with the remaining oil and season. Heat a griddle pan and cook for 3 mins each side or until cooked to your liking. Season the potatoes and stir in the mint, then serve with the griddled lamb and peas or salad.
