Salt Marsh Lamb and Sauteed Potatoes

Posted By Kerri


We were supposed to go on a picnic today but the weather looked so unreliable that we ended up cancelling. Faced with a second evening of non-planned meals, I spent a while looking at recipes online; nothing inspired me though so I paid a visit to the butcher to see if I could find anything there. I looked at sausages briefly but then I spied the Salt Marsh lamb. We both love lamb and eat it a lot, Salt Marsh lamb is our absolute favourite though and it’s not around for very long so it wasn’t a difficult decision.

We kept the lamb free of any herbs and just sprinkled it with a little salt before frying. These were thick, leg steaks so we cooked them for three minutes on one side and two on the other which resulted in very pink steaks. I think three minutes per side would have been better.

At the same time, we cooked some sauteed potatoes and steamed some runner beans, all of which worked well with the meat. Stephen commented on the almost game-like flavour of the lamb, a result of a long hanging time we suspect.

    I must be channelling you! I was planning on lamb chump steaks, runner beans and mash or fondant potato today (I hadn’t seen yours)!

    Sadly, I’ve never had salt marsh lamb, although I would love to try it! This looks GLORIOUS and more than enough to make up for not picnicking!
