Lamb sausages in prosciutto with fresh green salad

Ingredients

For the lamb sausages
For the fresh green salad
  • 150g/5¼oz fresh peas (shelled weight)

  • 150g/5¼oz fresh broad beans (podded weight)

  • 6 smoked bacon rashers, cut into strips

  • small handful rocket

  • Small handful baby spinach

For the creamy mustard vinaigrette
For the yoghurt and cucumber dip

Preparation method

  1. For the lamb sausages, preheat the oven to 190C/375F/Gas 5. Lightly grease a baking tray

  2. Place the lamb mince in a large bowl and break it up using a fork. Add the ground coriander, cumin, onion, parsley, chilli and breadcrumbs and stir. Add the egg, season, to taste, with salt and freshly ground black pepper and mix until well combined.

  3. Divide the mixture in 12 portions, shape each portion into a sausage using your hands, then wrap in a slice of prosciutto. Place the sausages onto the prepared baking tray and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden-brown and cooked though.

  4. Meanwhile, for the yoghurt and cucumber dip, mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl and season, to taste, with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

  5. For the fresh green salad with bacon, steam the peas and broad beans for three minutes, or until tender. Refresh the peas and broad beans in a bowl of iced water, then drain and pat dry with kitchen paper.

  6. Fry the bacon in a frying pan for 1-2 minutes on each side, or until crisp. Set aside to drain on kitchen paper.

  7. For the creamy mustard vinaigrette, whisk all of the ingredients together in a small bowl. Place the rocket, baby spinach, peas, broad beans and bacon into a large bowl, pour over the dressing and mix until well combined.

  8. To serve, place the sausages onto each of four serving plates and spoon the salad alongside. Serve the yoghurt and cucumber dip in a small bowl alongside.
