What you need:

  • 2 lamb neck fillets weighing about 200g each
  • 30ml/2tbsp harissa sauce
  • 1 red pepper, deseeded
  • 1 large courgette
  • 1 aubergine, trimmed
  • 15ml/1 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and round black pepper
  • Pitta bread to serve

    For the dip

  • 90ml/6tbsp of fresh Houmous dip
  • 90ml/6 tbsp Greek yogurt
  • 30ml/2tbsp chopped fresh mint

What you do:

  1. Place the lamb in a non-metallic dish, add the harissa sauce and turn to coat the lamb. If you have time leave the lamb to marinate in the fridge for a couple of ours.
  2. Preheat a griddle pan or barbecue. Add the lamb and cook over a medium heat for 15mins, turning occasionally until it is charred all over. Pop the meat in a roasting tray and bake for 10-15mins depending how pink you like your lamb.
  3. Whilst the lamb cooks, cut the pepper into chunks; diagonally slice the courgette; slice the aubergine. Place all the vegetables in a bowl, add the oil and salt and pepper and toss to mix. Add the vegetables to the griddle pan in batches and cook for 6-8mins, turning until they are charred and tender. Transfer to a plate and keep warm.
  4. To make the dip, mix the houmous, yogurt and mint together and season to taste if liked. To serve, slice the lamb and arrange on a platter with the vegetables and dip, serve with some warm pita bread if liked.
