Lamb
6 x 200g lamb rump (cap on)
50ml canola oil
800g baby potatoes
2 Tbsp dukkah
Salt and pepper to taste 

Pea puree
500g frozen peas
200g butter 

Salad
200g frozen peas
2 long red chillies
1 small red onion
1 bunch of mint
1 bunch of parsley
50g feta cheese
100ml The Quay vinaigrette 

Preheat an oven to 200°C. Rub lamb with salt, pepper and canola oil. Heat oil in heavy-based fry-pan over medium heat. Place lamb fat-side down and keep moving and pressing frequently for about 10-12 minutes. Once the fat is fully rendered, transfer rumps to an ovenproof dish to roast for 8-10 minutes. Remove from heat and rest for 10 minutes. Bring a pot of salted water to the boil, add the peas and boil for 3 minutes. Strain peas and combine with butter in a mixer. Blend until smooth and season well. Finely chop salad ingredients and toss in vinaigrette.
