Ingredients
8 lamb chops
2 tbsp harissa paste
Salt and black pepper
3 tbsp ghee or coconut oil
3 large handfuls of fresh spinach
1 tsp ground cumin
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
Method

1 Pat the lamb chops dry with kitchen paper and spread them all over with harissa. Transfer to a non-metallic dish and cover with cling film. Place in the fridge to marinate for two hours, returning to room temperature 30 minutes before you start cooking.

2 Sprinkle the lamb chops with salt and black pepper. Melt two tablespoons of the ghee or oil in a large heavy pan over a medium heat until hot but not smoking, then cook the chops for 3-4 minutes per side. Transfer the chops to a plate, cover with foil and rest for 5-6 minutes.

3 Meanwhile, melt the remaining ghee in the same pan and cook the spinach for 2-3 minutes until wilted, seasoning generously. Sprinkle with the cumin and squeeze over some lemon juice. Serve the spinach with the lamb chops.
