Hot Harissa Lamb with Couscous

Harissa Lamb

I’ve got one with lamb for you which I’ve done a few times and is from a food magazine. The only problem is that there isn’t much you can do in advance, and you have to cook it when you’re ready to eat.

Serves 4

4 tbsp harissa paste
300g couscous
Herb salad
4 lamb leg steaks (about 600g in total)
2tbsp demarara sugar

Spoon 1 tbsp harissa into a jug, fill with 400ml boiling water, then pour over the couscous in a large serving bowl. Cover and stand for 5 mins. Fluff with a fork, then empty the salad on top.

Heat a frying pan. Season lamb then fry for 1 min each side. Mix sugar and remaining harissa together, then spread over the lamb. Cook for 2 more mins on each side, remove from pan and rest for 5 mins. Add a splash of water to the pan, then boil to make a sauce. Slice lamb and serve on top of the salad with the sauce drizzled over.
