Costolette di agnello impanate e fritte (fried crumbed lamb cutlets)

Serves Icon
Time 30 Minutes
  • 12 lamb cutlets
  • 120g breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons flat-leaf parsley
  • 20g Parmigiano Reggiano
  • 2 eggs, lightly whisked
  • 4 lime wedges to serve (alternatively lemon wedges)
  • canola oil for frying
  • Sea salt
  • 60g flour

How to Make It
Step 1

Use a meat tenderiser to gently flatten the meat on each cutlet.

Step 2

Place flour in a bowl. In a separate bowl, place the breadcrumbs, parsley and Parmigiano Reggiano. Toss to combine. Use a fork to lightly whisk the eggs in a separate shallow bowl.

Step 3

Coat 1 lamb cutlet in flour, shaking off any excess. Dip the flour coated lamb in the egg mixture, then coat in breadcrumbs. Place the crumbed lamb cutlet onto a plate. Repeat with the remaining lamb cutlets.

Step 4

Pour enough canola oil into a large frying pan to cover the base. Heat the frying pan over medium heat. Cook the lamb cutlets, in batches, until golden (approximately 2-3 minutes on each side for medium or until cooked to your liking). The cooking time will also vary depending on the thickness of the lamb. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel. Allow the meat to rest for a few minutes. Serve 3 lamb cutlets per person with lime wedges – Buon appetito.
