A minty fresh pea relish is the perfect accompaniment to Aaron Craze's caramelised lamb cutlets
Method1. Mix all the marinade ingredients together in a large, shallow bowl and add the cutlets, coating them entirely. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
2. Combine the mustard and honey in a small bowl and brush over the marinated lamb. Cook under the grill on a high heat for 12-16 minutes, turning half-way through.
3. Meanwhile, prepare the relish. Combine the cooked peas, vinegar, spring onions, olive oil, mint and seasoning in a food processor or blender, and whizz briefly until chunky. Stir in the tomatoes, crushing them as you go, and transfer to a bowl.
4. Remove chops from under the grill and arrange three on each plate. Serve with a dollop of relish and a slice of crusty bread.
