Apple and macadamia crusted lamb

In the kitchen one tends to become set in your own ways, using the same ingredients for many different dishes. For a fresh approach on a lovely meal try this fantastic recipe…


100g macadamia nuts

1 small granny smith apple, grated

1 lemon, rind finely grated, juiced

2 tbs roughly chopped fresh rosemary

Salt & freshly ground pepper

1 kg lamb racks, cut into 4 even-sized racks

Olive oil spray

80g pkt baby rocket

1 tomato, quartered, seeds removed, cut into strips

150g feta, sliced thinly


  1. Coarsely crush nuts in a mortar and pestle. Combine with apple, lemon rind and rosemary. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Preheat oven to 200°C. Place lamb racks in a roasting pan. Press macadamia mixture onto one side of each lamb rack. Spray lightly with olive oil. Roast 25-35 minutes for medium. Cover with foil, set aside.
  3. Combine rocket, tomato and feta in a large bowl. Drizzle over the lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper.

The lovely Alto Rouge will pair wonderfully with this dish.
