Method

  • Preheat the oven to 200 C, 180 C fan, 400 F, gas 6. Marinate the lamb by mixing together the coriander, cinnamon and olive oil, then rub over the meat, place in a zip-lock bag and refrigerate until needed.

  • To make the dressing, place the garlic in a mortar and pestle with 1tsp sea salt, and crush to a smooth paste. Add the mustard powder then the sherry vinegar and mix well. Finally mix in the olive oil, a little at a time.

  • Drizzle the sweet potatoes with olive oil, season and roast for 15 to 20 minutes until tender and slightly charred at the edges. During the last 5 minutes, add the peppers and beetroot. Remove all from the oven, place on a plate, drizzle over the dressing and parsley.

  • Place the lamb on a baking tray and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and leave to rest for 5 minutes before carving into thick slices and serving with the warm salad.
