We ate the Souvlaki lamb in wholemeal tortilla wraps (them) and taco shells (me) and B15 also did a baked potato with butter and cheese for us too. Yum!! ;)
Here we go... (bear in mind these recipes have been modified from a single serve from a Home-Economics class menu) Serves 4
2 tblspn olive oil
600 gms lamb, cubed
3 tbspn fresh oregano - chopped
2 tspn fresh thyme - chopped
3 tblspn lemon juice
Extras to serve (prepare and put on table for self service/build your own:
Lettuce leaves, shredded
grated carrot & cheese
Tortilla wraps/taco shells or pita bread
Mix oil, lemon juice and herbs together, toss in lamb and coat well. Marinate for
as long a possible (1/2 hour or more so flavours sink in)
Heat a large pan, then stir fry the lamb until browned and tender.
Remove from pan and place in a serving bowl. Let each person build their own wrap with salad ingredients, lamb and dip.
These are quite large so you may want to resize next time.
1 can apricot halves - drain and reserve juice
2 tspn corn flour
1 tspn sugar
You need 1 sheet of puff pastry per person
Cut thawed pastry into 4 equal squares. On a paper lined baking sheet, take first square of pastry, brush with milk, place second square on top, repeat with milk and add third square.
Using a scone cutter, cut a hole through the 3 layers. Brush with milk and add the 4th square of pastry. Using a spatula, flip over the whole stack - you will have a base and sides with a hole in the middle. The extra round pieces of pastry can be baked also. Brush with milk then bake in a 200DegC about 15 minutes or until golden and fully puffed.
In a microwave safe dish, combine the apricot syrup and corn flour & sugar, getting rid of any lumps. Microwave in 30 sec bursts, stirring in between, until the mixture thickens.
Place each hot puff on a plate, place 3-4 apricot halves in the centre, drizzle with syrup mixture, then add a dollop of whipped cream, add the round puff and dust with icing sugar. Enjoy!
I hope I have modified the quantities okay - B15 did a fantastic job. There was quite a bit to do as you can see and I think she fully appreciates how hard it can be to deliver a full meal and trimmings to the table, making sure everything is ready and hot etc.
Love you B
