Griddled lamb with pomegranate molasses, herbs and honey

By Silvia Nacamulli, September 15, 2014

This simple, delicious recipe is ideal for Rosh Hashanah as it uses pomegranate molasses and honey. I make it with the small cutlets of a French trimmed rack of lamb, which are tender and take minutes to cook. However, you can use larger cutlets, in which case sear them on the stove first and finish them in the oven for 10-15 minutes.

Serves: 4 as a main course
