  • Serves: 4
  • Time: 7 mins
  • Course: Main
  • Cuisine: Irish


  • 1 mango
  • ½ cucumber, deseeded
  • ½ bunch of scallions
  • 1 red chilli
  • 1 passion fruit
  • 2 limes
  • 2 tbsp fish sauce
  • 2 tbsp garlic-infused olive oil
  • salt and pepper


Prep: 20 mins (+ 30 mins resting time)

Chop the flesh of the mango and cucumber into small pieces. Slice the scallions (the white section and ¾ of the green). Deseed the chilli and chop very finely.

Place everything into a small mixing bowl.

Cut the passion fruit in half and empty the juice and seeds into the mixing bowl using a small spoon. Add the finely grated zest of 1 lime and 4 tbsp of lime juice. Add the fish sauce, mix and season to taste.

Cover and leave to rest in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

Take the lamb out of the fridge 30 minutes in advance of cooking. Pre-heat a frying pan on a high heat. Brush the lamb with garlic-infused olive oil, season with salt and pepper and place in the pan. Cook for 2 minutes on each side, then reduce the heat and continue to cook depending on your preference and the thickness of the cut.

Serve with the salsa and crusty bread.

Tip: The salsa needs to be left to rest so the flavours can mix and develop, and also to create a crunchy-soft effect.
