Recipe Instructions

Marinating the lamb

Put the prepped lamb meat cutlets in a clean bowl. Add the dried oregano, dried lavender, sea salt and freshly ground pepper and rub it all over the lamb. To give time for the flavors to soak into the meat, cover the bowl, refrigerate and marinade it for at least four hours.

Preparing the asparagus

Get a shallow dish and combine 2tbsp of olive oil, some sea salt and black pepper. Also add the lemon halves. Dip in the asparagus spears, making sure each has been coated thoroughly in the lemon oil.


Get your barbecue plate ready by preheating it to medium-high. Then, get a sheet of foil and put the garlic there. Pour 30ml of olive oil in and wrap all the way through. Barbecue the garlic for about 15 minutes or until it turns a golden color. Make sure to turn the foil every now and then to keep the garlic from burning.

Get the bowl of lamb from the fridge and pour the remaining 30ml of olive oil in. Mix. Then, put the meat on the barbecue plate, cooking each side for at least 3 minutes or until it is cooked to the degree you prefer. Once cooked, put on a serving plate and cover to keep warm.

Next that you will barbecue is the asparagus. Put the asparagus spears on the barbecue plate and reserve the marinade you used for it. Barbecue the spears until tender. Once cooked, dip again into the marinade again and arrange on the plate with the barbecued lamb.
