Serves 4 | Prep 2 minutes | Cook 10 minutes


  • Bring the lamb to room temperature before cooking, to help cook quickly and more evenly. Season generously with sea salt and cracked pepper.

  • Heat a large non-stick frying pan, over medium high heat, add 1 tbsp. olive oil.

  • Cook the backstraps for 4 minutes. Turn. Cook the second side for a further 3 minutes.

  • Remove to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes before slicing to serve.

  • Into the pan juices add the tomatoes, season with salt, pepper and a splash of lemon juice.

  • Sauté, shaking pan frequently, until tomatoes soften and skins just begin to wrinkle, about 2 minutes.

  • Into the pan, place the haloumi slices. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, gently turn and splash with a good squeeze of lemon juice.

  • When golden in colour, remove from the pan and serve on a platter with lamb and tomatoes.
