Fillet of lamb is a very tender and delicate cut. Just right for a special dish.


  • 2 fillets of lamb
  • a little Dijon mustard
  • olive oil
  • a little fresh lemon juice
  • fresh, finely chopped Rosemary
  • foil
  • salt and pepper
(see measure conversions for more information on quantites)


  1. Cut a piece of foil for each fillet.
  2. Lay the fillets in the middle of the foil and spread with a little mustard.
  3. Drizzle a little olive oil over the fillets and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Add a squeeze of lemon juice and sprinkle on about half a tablespoon of finely chopped Rosemary leaves over each fillet.
  5. Seal the foil parcels and put them onto a baking tray.
  6. Cook in the oven at 190 degrees Centigrade (see temperature conversions) for about 20 minutes.
  7. Check after 15 minutes that the meat is cooking as required.
  8. To serve, discard most of the Rosemary.
  9. Serve with Redcurrant Sauce.
