Greek lamb pittas

  • Total time: 35 minutes

Serves: 4


2 lamb neck fillets (about 170g each), trimmed and halved widthways
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 lemons
15g pack oregano, leaves only, chopped
10 pitted Kalamata olives, chopped
4 essential Waitrose Wholemeal Pitta, toasted and halved widthways
100g feta cheese, crumbled


1. Mix the lamb neck fillets with 2 tbsp oil, the zest and juice of 1 lemon, and half the oregano then season and set aside for 5 minutes.

2. Heat a heavy, non-stick frying pan until smoking hot. Cook the lamb, turning often, for 12-15 minutes, until thoroughly cooked or to your liking. Remove and rest under foil. Add the marinade to the pan, bring to the boil and pour over the lamb.
