An exotic Moroccan couscous salad with chickpeas, raisins and colourful vegetables coated in a delicately spiced olive oil and lemon dressing. A stunning addition to the lamb fillet.


  1. Trim off any silver skin and fat from the lamb fillets and marinate in the harrissa paste. Seal in a vacuum pouch
  2. Cook in a pre-heated water oven at 55 degrees for 30 mins (rare) or 58 degree for 20 mins (medium)
  3. Take the lamb from the pouch and pat dry. In a very hot griddle plate char the fillets off and season with salt
  4. Mix the couscous with the raisins in a bowl and pour over the boiling stock
  5. Cover with a dish towel, plate or plastic wrap to seal in the steam and let sit for 5 minutes
  6. Place the oil, lemon juice, garlic, spices and salt in a jar with a screw-top lid and shake to mix
  7. Fluff the couscous with a fork to separate the grains and stir through the carrot, red pepper, onion, chickpeas and parsley. Pour over the dressing and toss together until well combined.
  8. To serve, place the couscous in bowls and carve the grilled lamb fillets on top. Sprinkle with pomegranate seeds, chopped coriander and roasted pistachio nuts

Chef’s Tip –

This is the perfect summer dish. Why not wrap in a grilled wrap or pitta for a snack or picnic dish and serve with a cucumber raita.
