I make this frequently - although use pepitas (pumpkin seeds) in the pesto rather than capers. It's delicious and looks wonderful. I've also used the parsley pesto (with pepitas) as a stuffing for chicken fillets.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place lamb in a shallow non-metal bowl. Combine oil, lemon rind and juice, vinegar and italian herbs in a bowl and season to taste. Pour over lamb and turn to coat. Cover and chill for 1 hour.
  2. Heat a barbecue plate on medium-high. Cook lamb on barbecue, frequently basting with marinade, 4 minutes each side for medium, or to desired done-ness. Transfer to a platter, cover, and let rest 5 minutes before slicing.
  3. For Feta and Parsley Pesto, place parsley, capers, oil, garlic, and lemon juice in a food processor and pulse until roughly chopped. Remove, stir through feta and season to taste.
  4. Serve lamb topped with Pesto.
