For the lamb

2 lemons, juice only

75ml/3fl oz olive oil

1 tbsp garlic infused oil

2 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary

4 lamb rumps, with fat on

salt and freshly ground black pepper

For the salsa verde

50g/2oz fresh flatleaf parsley leaves

25g/1oz rocket leaves

15g/½oz fresh mint leaves

15g/½oz fresh marjoram leaves

4-6 tbsp olive oil (to cover the herbs)

1½ tbsp capers

6 anchovy fillets

1 tbsp Dijon mustard, or to taste

salt and freshly ground black pepper


For the lamb, preheat the oven to 190C/375F/Gas 5. Pour the lemon juice and olive oil into a bowl. Add the six whole garlic infused oil and all of the rosemary and mix together. Add the lamb rump and rub it all over with the marinade. Set aside for at least one hour.

Meanwhile, for the salsa verde, finely chop the herbs and cover with oil immediately so that they don’t turn brown. Pound the  capers and anchovies to a paste in a pestle and mortar (or in a food processor). Mix the herbs into the paste, then stir in Dijon mustard, to taste.

Season, to taste, with salt and freshly ground black pepper (remember that anchovies and capers are both quite salty). Remove the lamb from the marinade and pat dry. Season all over with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Heat an ovenproof frying pan over very high heat. When the pan is hot, add the marinated lamb rump and fry on all sides, or until browned all over.

Transfer the lamb to the oven and roast for 10-12 minutes (for medium, depending on the size of the rump). Remove the lamb from the oven and set aside to rest for a couple of minutes. While the lamb is resting, bring a pan of salted water to the boil. Add the spinach and boil for one minute, or until wilted. Drain into a colander and press lightly with the back of a wooden spoon to remove any excess water. Season, to taste, with salt and freshly ground black pepper and drizzle over a little olive oil.

To serve, carve each lamb rump lengthways into three slices. Spoon some of the salsa verde on top of the lamb.
