This recipe is created by Justine Schofield for our partnership with Everyday Gourmet.

To make the pickle: Using a peeler, peel the carrot into long ribbons and then cut in half. Gather bundles and finely slice into thin strips. Alternatively use a julienne peeler. Place the vinegar, sugar, coriander seeds and ½ a cup of water into a saucepan over high heat and cook, stirring regularly until the sugar has completely dissolved. Bring to the boil then pour over the carrot and chilli and let the liquid cool to room temperature before storing in an airtight container or jar and transferring to the fridge. This can be made a few days in advance.

To make the grilled lamb: Cut the rack into six thick cutlets. Oil and season with salt and pepper and then sprinkle over dukkah. Heat the OptiGrill Elite or grill to “beef” function or on high and grill the cutlets for 6-8 minutes or to your liking.

To make the yoghurt sauce: Combine yoghurt, tahini and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper.

To serve: Serve cutlets with rice, a dollop of yoghurt and carrots drained from pickling liquid.
