Parmesan-crusted Lamb Medallions with Feta Salad

Parmesan-crusted Lamb Medallions with Feta Salad, Lay The Table

This is a beautiful light and tasty dish with a great marriage of textures: moist, juiciness from the lamb; crunchiness from the coating; crispness from the salad; creaminess from the feta. 

I used a rack of lamb, which I then trimmed down into a whole loin, then sliced into medallions before flattening into 5cm diameter, 1 cm thick, rounds with a meat hammer.

Serves 1-2, depending on appetite

1 rack or loin of lamb
1 tbsp plain flour
1 egg, beaten
100g breadcrumbs
50g Parmesan, finely grated
1 tsp chilli powder (optional)
1 tsp black pepper (optional)
100ml olive or rapeseed oil, for frying

For the salad

Couple of handfuls rocket leaves
Handful Santini or cherry tomatoes, halved
100g feta cheese, cubed
Half cucumber, roughly chopped
1 lemon
