Cucumber and garlic are two of the ingredients in this month’s Food Blog Challenge basket by Foodblogs Schweiz. Cucumber and garlic are also two of the key ingredients in tzatziki. In this dish, I serve it on beautifully seared lamb loin with pleasant citrusy notes.
Shred and drain a cucumber. Drain 150 g Greek yoghurt. Mix and taste with finely chopped garlic and mint as well as fleur de sel.
In a medium hot pan, fry lamb loin in olive oil. Cut into portion pieces and taste them with lemon juice, lime and lemon zest, fleur de sel and black pepper.
Assemble by placing tzatziki dollops on the meat and decorating it with mint, geranium and wood-sorrel blossom.
