4 300g ‘Barnsley’ Lamb Chops
100g Toasted flaked Almonds
1 Punnet Cherry Tomatoes
2 Shallots diced
100g of Currants
1 bunch of Coriander
1 bunch of Mint
1 bunch Parsley
300g of Mount Zero Pearled Farrow, soaked in cold water overnight
Mount Zero Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Fresh Lemon Juice
Diced Chill to taste
Mount Zero Dukkah
Boil the Mount Zero farro in lightly salted water till soft to the bite. You can add aromatics like onion, garlic, thyme to give it more flavour. One step further you can toast the farrow in the oven for ten minutes at 180c to give it a lightly roasted and nuttier flavour.
While the farro is cooking, BBQ the lamb chops to your desired temperature and leave to rest.
Drain the farro through a colander and let it cool down so it is still warm but not really hot, as this will wilt the herbs.
Chop the mint, coriander, parsley and tomatoes roughly with a knife.
Mix the herbs, currants, chilli, shallots, almonds, tomatoes with Mount Zero farro in a large bowl.
To finish season with Mount Zero extra virgin olive oil, fresh lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste.
Place the lamb chop on the salad and sprinkle a generous amount of dukkah.
