Cheddar and Cashew Crusted Cutlets
Crunchy , golden cheese crust on lamb cutlets.
|Preparation Time:||15 minutes|
|Cooking time:||10 minutes|
- 50gcheddar Cheese, chopped
- 1/2 cup (100g) salted roasted cashew nuts
- 1 spring onion, roughly chopped
- 12 lamb cutlets
- olive oil, for pan frying
- freshly ground black pepper, to taste
- sweet potato mash or salad, for serving
Blend cashew nuts and spring onion in a food processor until coarsely chopped, add cheese and blend until well combined. Firmly press spoonfuls of the cheddar crumbing onto each side of the cutlets and season with pepper. Heat a lightly oiled large non-stick frypan and pan fry cutlets for 3-4 minutes on the first side, pressing occasionally with a spatula, until a golden crust forms. Carefully turn over and cook on second side a further 2 minutes or until golden. The crust is very delicate so take care handling the cutlets. Serve with sweet potato mash or salad.
Sprinkle a little extra shaved or grated cheddar into mash or over salad before serving.
