Tim from The Urban Food Market gave me some Saltbush Lamb to try. It's a free range lamb and it comes from the only MSA accredited Saltbush Lamb producer in Australia.
He gave me 2 shoulder racks and suggested that I either slow cook it or pan fry it. I went for pan frying the lamb so I could taste the full flavour. I cut the rack into 4 pieces and marinated them in olive oil, crushed garlic, salt and crushed peppercorns.
As I was grabbing the frying pan I saw my cherry red George Foreman grill. It's been so long since I've used it so I grabbed it and cooked the lamb. I cooked it for 6 minutes each side and took it off the heat to rest.
I wanted a simple side dish to go with the lamb. Brocolini is one of my favourite vegetables. I blanched a bunch and made a brocolini, orange and cashew salad. I just made a dressing with some lime juice, mustard, salt and pepper.
I'm not normally a big fan of Lamb unless its lamb shanks that are slowly cooked and falls off the bone. The saltbush lamb was juicy and soft. It didn't have that over powering flavour that lamb normally has. If you are not a big lamb fan. I suggest you try saltbush lamb. It's great quality and really easy to cook.
