How to Make:

  1. Trim thick stalks off spinach. Wash well. Heat a large, dry non-stick frypan on high heat.
  2. Add spinach, turning with tongs as it wilts down. Keep the pan over high heat to evaporate any water. Remove the spinach when softly wilted. Drain on paper towel.
  3. Preheat barbecue or grill on high. Heat oil in the same pan over medium-high heat and gently fry garlic until golden.
  4. Immediately return spinach to pan with pine nuts and sultanas, tossing quickly until hot and well-dressed. Divide among warm plates and scatter with lemon zest.
  5. Meanwhile, brush lamb with oil and season. Grill very quickly on a chargrill or barbecue over high heat for 1-2 minutes each side until they are scorched and sizzling hot. Serve with spinach and lemon.
