Cooking lettuce
Cooked lettuce is delicious, but if you overdo it, the lettuce will lose all its colour and vibrancy. Just a few mins in simmering stock should be enough to cook it, but also to retain a slight ccrunch.


  1. Heat the butter in a frying pan until sizzling, then add the lamb. Season with salt, if you like, and pepper, then cook for 6-7 mins until browned on all sides. Scatter in the peas, pour in the stock, then bring up to a simmer and gently cook until the peas have defrosted.

  2. Add the lettuce to the pan and simmer for a few mins until just starting to wilt, but still vibrant green. Serve scooped straight from the pan, with buttered new potatoes.
