I am (mostly) a convert to the Paleo diet.

As such, I am always looking for recipes or ideas to present food in an interesting way, using Paleo friendly ingredients as much as possible.

I found a recipe for Crispy Lamb Cutlets in a Womens Institute Cookery book I was browsing yesterday. After playing with the list of ingredients, I came up with this Paleo version:

Serves 4

8 Lamb cutlets or 4 loin chops

seasoning you prefer (I use sea-salt, and occasionally fresh ground peppercorns)

flour for coating (I used almond flour)

50g/2oz of walnuts, finely chopped.

40g/1 1/2 oz of cornflakes (optional, not Paleo, but tasty…)

beaten egg

oil for shallow frying ( I used EVOO)


Rub the meat with your seasoning, then lightly coat with flour.  Mix the nuts and cornflakes (if used). I rolled mine under a rolling pin.

Dip the meat into the beaten egg and then coat it with the nut mixture. Press it on firmly.

Shallow fry for 5-8 minutes or until lamb is done to your taste.

I served mine with mashed sweet potato and cauliflower.

Tasty, filling and (mostly) Paleo 🙂
