Lamb Tenderloins with Basil Mint Sauce

Lamb tenderloins and mint sauce

The basil mint sauce has a pesto like consistency and is delicious on lamb, or with sweet potato chips. It avoids the Parmesan cheese of traditional pesto, but is still very tasty.


  • 500 gr lamb tenderloin
  • Sea salt and black pepper
  • Handful of fresh mint leaves
  • Handful of fresh basil leaves
  • Juice of half a lime
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • Olive oil


  1. To make the sauce, put the mint, basil, lime, garlic, olive oil in a blender.
  2. Season with salt and pepper. Blend until smooth and set aside.
  3. Season the lamb with salt and pepper.
  4. Fry the tenderloins in a large frying pan to your liking.
  5. Let the meat rest for a couple of minutes before serving with the basil and mint sauce.

Makes an easy diner with sweet potato chips and a quick salad.
