I’m in love with pistachios! Not sure how it started, but my passion for pistachios has grown even more after I had this pistachio pesto. Remember this one?
I made a jar of pistachio pesto and had it over pasta, fried eggs, and grilled sandwiches. I want to put pistachios on everything. It was so good, and I am craving another serving now, and I thought it’s a good idea to raise my game. So here I am, first time cooking lamb. Some people, including myself, have a love-hate relationship with lamb. It’s okay, but it requires some love and attention to cook lamb…or you will end up disappointed with the result.
Another issue with this recipe is grilling. It’s Spring, but the weather has been windy and a bit cold lately, which merely translates to … let me stay comfy inside. And I am glad I found this Hamilton Beach Indoor Searing Grill (pstt…it’s on sale now). It’s a lifesaver, yo! And I love everything about this. It’s easy to use, to clean, and doesn’t take too much space on the countertop.
So this recipe has both – love and pistachios. It has all the flavors you want in one bite, and the fun part is using a rosemary sprig as your stick. How fun is that? Have you ever cooked lamb before?Print
