Macadamia lamb with orange chips


Serves: 4
Time to make: 30 mins
Total cost: $32.52 / $8.13 per serve

  • 600g sweet potatoes, cut into batons or wedges
  • 1/2 cup macadamia nuts
  • 8 x 75g lean lamb leg steaks
  • 200g sugar snap peas, trimmed
  • 200g snow peas, trimmed
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 50g baby spinach leaves


Step 1 Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Place sweet potato on tray, spray with oil and bake for 25 minutes, or until golden and tender.

Step 2 Meanwhile, place macadamia nuts into a food processor and blend until very finely chopped. Sprinkle one side of each lamb steak with nuts and press lightly to secure. Season with freshly ground black pepper.

Step 3 Spray a large frying pan with oil and place over medium-high heat. Cook lamb for 7–8 minutes, turning halfway through cooking, or until cooked to your liking.

Step 4 Meanwhile, steam all three types of peas until tender. Add spinach and toss gently to combine, until wilted. Serve pea mixture with lamb and sweet potato chips.


  • Add 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves to food processor with nuts for more flavour.
  • You can also swap the lamb for salmon or kangaroo steaks.
