How to make it

  • Put the olive oil, and garlic into a food processor chop almost to a puree and then put in the olives. Continue until smooth. Put this into a bowl and mix in the remaining ingredients. The herbs should be finely chopped. Use this to besmear the lamb entirely and let it set covered tightly in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.
  • Set up your grill for smoking - That is a low intensity even heat. Soak the chips in warm water to which was added a little sweet red wine for about 6 hours before.
  • Place the lamb in a cooler region, add the chips and cover. Here directions can not be specific as every one’s set up will differ. Just check it. When I do this my way it takes about an hour and I love rare meat if that gives you any ideas.
  • While the lamb is working at some point lightly oil and bake the mushrooms Let them cool.
  • VINAIGRETTE: This can be made in a blender. Put the tangerine juice, garlic and egg in first, then at high speed slowly drizzle in the oil until a medium-loose emulsification is formed. Season with the quince jelly, mustard, salt and red pepper.
  • COMPOSE THE SALAD: Right before all is good, toss the greens and the flowers in the vinaigrette. Set the mushroom in the centre of the plate and form the salad so that it starts in the middle of the mushroom and also branches out four times almost to the edge of the plate. Some of the mushroom must be showing.
  • Sprinkle the pistachios on top in the middle of the salad and set some thinly sliced goat cheese on the top of it all.
  • Set 1 lamb chop in each of the spaces between where the salad projects out.
  • ***This is a perfect 5th date recipe, for men that is. Since women are apt to only eat salads on the first few dates anyway you’re covered. But the cleverly sized lamb chops will give you the chance to see if the girl is a keeper.
