Like most of my dishes/recipes, I almost always have no idea what im going to make until theyre finished & I make em up as I go along. I started out with a bit of lamb neck chopped up, which I seasoned with crushed black pepper and i tiny bit of all purpose seasoning.  Then comes the marinade : I grabbed a small ramekin and mixed the juice of half a lemon, some chopped up corriander, a crushed clove of garlic, a teaspoon of dried mint & a teaspoon of wholegrain mustard, a bit of olive oil, whisked them altogether with a fork, then mixed them in with the lamb and left it there to marinade for an hour or so. After that, heat up a dry griddle pan & cook the lamb for about 5 minutes either side.IMG_4896

Next are the Croutons. I was at the end of my bloomer of poppy seed bread and what was left was a little ‘crispy’ in a word, but that makes perfect for croutons! I cut two thick slices then cut them into squares, drizzled a little bit of olive oil and salt , then throw em in the oven @ 180 degrees, and keep em in there until the very end. IMG_4897

After that I got some rocket, baby spinach, tomato and cucumber, put in the croutons and then finally the lamb & boom! we are done!
