Pan Fried Rosemary & Garlic Lamb Fillet

Lamb Fillet with Rosemary and Garlic served with Potato Boulangere

Tesco have started stocking lamb range by Silver Fern Farms which include some great cuts of meat which are very quick to cook and serve – perfect if you have little time but still want to impress. They are not cheap but lamb generally seems a little pricey at the moment.

This recipe uses the Lamb Loin Fillet (£8 for two loins but it would stretch to three servings as suggested on the packet.) I like to marinate the lamb for a couple of ours beforehand but this is not totally necessary.

    2. Heat a heavy based frying pan to a high heat and splash a tiny bit of oil in (the lamb already has oil on so you shouldn’t need much).

    5. Delicious served with boulangere potatoes.
