The sweet taste of the lamb chops is enhanced by a fresh mint and basil salsa verde, and finished off with chilli-roasted broccoli. A glass of Cotes du Rhone, with hints of red and black cherries and a spicy finish, brings out the rich flavour of the lamb.

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Put the broccoli in a roasting tin. Toss with the anchovies, chilli and oil; season well. Roast for 12-15 mins, until tender and lightly charred.
  2. To make the salsa verde, put all the ingredients in a small blender and pulse to a coarse paste. Set aside.
  3. Put the lamb on a large baking sheet; season well. Grill on a high heat for 3-4 mins on each side, until cooked through.
  4. Meanwhile, heat the quinoa following the packet instructions. Transfer to a serving bowl and toss with the broccoli mixture. Serve with the lamb and salsa verde.
