Recipe: Grilled lamb cutlets with fries and baby spinach & tomato salad

So, recently, BabySumoKids celebrated their birthdays. Every year for their birthday, they get to choose what they would like to eat for their "birthday meal". Baby D's birthday came first, and he chose risotto with seared scallops (recipe here), and for Baby C's birthday, she requested for lamb chops. I think this is the third year in a row she has asked for lamb :)

I usually cook lamb loin chops for her, however it was surprisingly hard to find this cut in the supermarket this time. After searching in several supermarkets, we finally found French lamb cutlets at Ben's Independent Grocer. You can either pan fry them, or cook them in the oven or grill.

For ease of cooking (and cleaning), I put them under a hot grill and cooked them for 3 minutes on each side for medium rare doneness. We served the lamb cutlets with fries and a baby spinach & tomato salad.  The lamb cutlets were tender and extremely juicy. What an enjoyable dinner.. simple, quick and good!

3. For the salad, mix the dressing ingredients and then pour over the baby spinach and toss. Top with cherry tomatoes.

Beautiful cherry tomatoes :)
