Ingredients

red onion

1 small, thinly sliced

lemon juice

2 tbs

olive oil

2 tsp

lean lamb fillet

450 g, (500g fat trimmed)

chargrilled capsicum in oil

200 g, drained, chopped

Almonds, with skin, roasted

¼ cup(s), (40g), chopped

chickpeas, canned, rinsed, drained

1 can(s), (400g)

baby spinach leaves

50 g

oil spray

1 x 3 second spray(s)

Instructions

  1. Combine onion, oregano, juice and oil in a small bowl. Set mixture aside for 10 minutes (see note).
  2. Meanwhile, lightly spray a large non-stick frying pan with oil and heat over medium-high heat. Cook lamb for 2–3 minutes each side or until cooked to your liking (see Quick Tip opposite). Transfer to a plate. Cover to keep warm. Allow lamb to rest for 5 minutes before slicing thickly.
  3. Combine peppers, almonds, chickpeas, spinach and sliced lamb in a large bowl. Add onion mixture and toss gently to combine. Serve.

Notes

TIPS: Soaking the onion in lemon juice for 10 minutes mellows the flavour and brightens the colour.Press meat with a pair of tongs to see how well it is cooked. Rare feels quite soft, medium feels slightly firm with some spring, while well-done feels firm with no spring.
