Cooking Time 15 minutes
Ingredients (serves 4)
3 tsp McCormick Middle Eastern spices (Harissa)
2 (about 400g) lamb eye of loin (backstrap)
2 tsp olive oil
290g (1 1/2 cups) couscous
1 tbs coarsely grated lemon rind
310ml (1 1/4 cups) salt-reduced chicken stock
60ml (1/4 cup) fresh lemon juice
340g chargrilled capsicum, cut into thin strips
1 x 280g btl artichoke hearts, drained, halved
1/2 cup chopped fresh continental parsley
130g (1/2 cup) Greek-style natural yoghurt
Place spice mix on a plate. Add the lamb and turn to coat. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the lamb and reduce heat to medium. Cook for 3-4 minutes each side for medium or until cooked to your liking. Transfer to a plate. Cover loosely with foil and set aside for 5 minutes to rest. Thickly slice across the grain.
Meanwhile, place the couscous and lemon rind in a medium heatproof bowl. Bring the stock to the boil in a small saucepan. Pour the stock and lemon juice over the couscous. Cover and set aside for 3-4 minutes or until all the liquid is absorbed. Use a fork to separate the grains. Add the capsicum, artichoke and parsley and stir until well combined.
Divide the couscous mixture among serving plates. Top with lamb and a dollop of yoghurt to serve.
