The night starts here... forget your name... forget your fear...
You drop a coin... into the sea... and shout out "Please come back to me"...
You name your child... after your fear... and tell them "I have brought you here"...

Roasted Lamb with Fig seasoning atop Pea and Potato Mash

Ok- So I just made this up on the spot but I loved it so much that I thought it should be published here (absolutely nothing to do with the fact that I haven't updated in a few months >>) Anyway, its quick, easy and minimal washing up - which in my eyes makes it totally worth it :D

What you need (measurements are all relative to how many people your serving, I'm sure you can estimate it ^^)

Lamb, be it fillets, chops whatever you want.
Fig paste
Butter (for the mash)
Milk (for the mash)
salt and pepper ( as you want it)

And how to do it:

Bring water to the boil in a pot and add your Potatoes let them boil for a little bit, when they're almost done throw in your peas into the same water and let them complete the cooking process together like good little vegetables :P

meanwhile, arrange your lamb on a baking tray, season with salt and pepper if you want, before chucking them under a hot grill... on my oven I put it to around 190C, but its really up to you (:
Let them cook on one side for about 4-5 minutes (this again depends on the thickness of your meat/ how much you want it cooked)

When the beeper goes off, take the lamb out of the oven. Turn the meat over and spread the fig paste on the uncooked side of the meat, once done so put it back in the oven for another 4 or so minutes.

By now your potatoes and peas should be done. Strain the veges, then mash up roughly- adding butter, milk and salt as you want.

and then simply wait for the oven to go off and serve the Lamb placed on top of the pea and potato mash.

Viola! and your done (:
