Lamb fillet recipes

This tender, lean cut of lamb is quick to cook and can be treated like beef fillet. Taken from the best end (or loin), it's well-trimmed and has little fat. It can be cooked whole, or cut into thick slices (noisettes).


If overcooked it will dry out, so roast it for a short time only (sear in a hot pan first), or pan-fry, grill or barbecue it and serve pink in the middle. Noisettes are best pan-fried or grilled for a few minutes.
