Colorado Lamb Loin, Heirloom Tomatoes & Cured Lemon Drizzle
Recipe by
chef Jeremy Emmerson

Make the lamb marinade - Roughly crush the garlic cloves, chop the rosemary mix with the olive oil toss the lamb in the mixture and leave the refrigerator over night.

Set Salad
Wash the potatoes. Boil the potatoes whole (you can use your microwave if cooking at home) until they are half cooked, remove them from the water and allow to cool. Once they have cooled cut the potatoes into quarters. Wash and cut the tomatoes, the cucumber ½ and lettuce place in a bowl or arrange on a platter. Cut the olives in half and add to the salad.

Cured Lemon Drizzle
Seed and dice the remaining cucumber ¼, dice the cured lemon. Finley chop 4 basil leaves, six oregano leaves and mix all the four together. Season with a few grinds of pepper, (no salt as the cured lemons are salty enough).
Make the dressing.
Pour the oil, vinegar honey and mustard into a small plastic bottle (12 - 20oz) sprinkle in a little salt and pepper and shake like crazy.

To finish
Remove the lamb from the refrigerator; pick off the large pieces of rosemary and garlic cloves. Heat two skillets. Seasons the lamb with salt and pepper and sear them in the fist skillet. In the second skillet, sauté the potatoes. Chop the remaining herbs. Toss the salad with some of the dressing and half the herbs, arrange on a platter. Sprinkle the remaining herbs onto the sautéed potatoes and add them to the salad. Slice the lamb and arrange it on the platter, top the lamb with the cured lemon drizzle.
