Kumara, Horopito Gnocchi w. Pan Fried Lamb & Chimichurri Dressing
Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 15 min
500g Pasta Vera – Kumara, Horopito Gnocchi
2 lamb loins
Large handful parsley, finely chopped
1 tbsp dried or ¼ cup fresh oregano, finely chopped
½ cup oil
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
2 – 3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 small red chilli, deseeded, chopped
1 small red onion, finely chopped
Salt and pepper
Rub the lamb with a little oil, season with plenty of salt and black pepper. Drizzle a little more oil into a non-stick frying pan (or you could BBQ it). When almost smoking hot, gently place the loins into the pan and fry to your liking – for medium rare – 10 – 12 mins in the pan.
I like to remove from the pan, just before it’s ready as it will continue to cook once it’s on a plate. Cover with foil and leave to rest.
Fill a saucepan of water, season generously with salt. Bring to a boil. Gently tumble in your gnocchi. When they float to the surface, drain and set aside.
In a smaller bowl add the dressing ingredients, mix well. Taste and season.
Add the gnocchi toss gently through the dressing.
Slice your gorgeous lamb.
SERVE: Spoon the dressed gnoochi onto a large serving platter. Top with the lamb and any juices on the plate. When serving individually, add a spoonful of dressing to each plate.
Jax Says: This dressing is sensational with any grilled meat, fish or tofu. Also with Pasta Vera linguine and smoked chicken.
