Lamb with rocket
I was at a small function a couple of weeks ago that served finger food. We had four different things - a small noodle salad served in glasses, mainly made up of glass noodles and some type of greens, chicken skewers with a chili dipping sauce, some outright disgusting sushi type roll with crab and shrimp (it was slimy and tasted muddy - no thanks!) and then the glorious thing - small slices of grilled baguette with a grilled lamb, and topped with a creamy ball of chevre cheese. Mm.
So that got me thinking. I want more lamb. And more chevre, for sure. So, a couple of nights ago I decided to make my own version. This was a lot more filling than it looked, and it's just a simple salad of rocket, grilled and skinned red bellpepper, grilled lamb in thin slices and topped with coriander, served with a chevre cream from cheese and creme fraiche. It was a great little evening meal.
I'm typing this with two kittens on my shoulder, playing with my hair. Claws are very, very sharp. I suppose it's a hint to go feed them.
