  • lamb leg steaks 2 (about 350g in total)
  • smoked paprika 1 tsp
  • ground cumin 1 tsp

  • red onion ½, grated
  • coriander a small handful, chopped
  • mint a small handful, chopped
  • lime 1, juiced
  • red chilli ½, finely chopped


  • Step 1

    Put the leg steaks in a dish. Mix the spices and groundnut oil with some seasoning then rub all over the lamb. Leave to marinate while you prep the rest of the recipe.

  • Step 2

    To make the guacamole, put the peas, onion, coriander, mint and lime juice in a food processor then pulse until combined. Add a good splash of water and pulse again. Stir in the chilli and some seasoning.

  • Step 3

    Griddle the tortillas or warm over a gas flame and wrap in foil to keep warm.

  • Step 4

    Heat a griddle to high then sear the lamb for 2-3 minutes each side. Rest for 3 minutes then slice. Spread some pea guacamole over each taco, add some lamb, feta and onion, then roll up. Serve with hot sauce.
