Date, Apricot and Lamb Salad

The perfect lamb dish takes on the sweet and tangy flavours of apricots, dates and orange. Serve on a bed couscous, rice or soft polenta.

Serves 4

8 fresh dates, seeds removed, sliced

8 apricots, halved, stones removed, cut into wedges

¼ cup slivered almonds, toasted

1 large orange, shredded rind and juice

2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

1 tsp smoky paprika

¼ tsp cinnamon

¼ tsp tabasco sauce

salt, to taste

white pepper, to taste

3 lamb backstraps or lamb leg

steaks (600g)

olive oil cooking spray

couscous, to serve

1 To make date salad, combine dates, apricots and almonds in a large bowl. 
Set aside.

2 To make dressing, combine orange rind, ½ cup orange juice, oil, paprika, cinnamon and tabasco sauce in a 
screw-top jar. Season with salt and 
white pepper. Secure lid and shake 
until well combined.

3 Heat a barbecue hotplate or char-grill pan over medium heat. Spray lamb with oil and season with salt and pepper. Cook lamb for 2–3 minutes on each side until medium-rare or cooked to your liking. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm. Stand for 10 minutes. Thinly 
slice diagonally.

4 To serve, add lamb to date salad. Add dressing and toss until well combined. Spoon couscous onto 4 serving plates and top with lamb salad.
