KFC-style devilled lamb nuggets

devilled lamb nuggets offal recipes

Offal ISN'T awful, and this recipe is an awesome starting point if you want to learn how to cook with it. Sweetbreads are from the neck and heart of a lamb, the thymus gland – it may sound a bit gross but they're cheap and taste stunning (and cost a fortune in London restaurants!). For me, when executed well, offal can taste better than the meat itself and these nuggets are so delicate, soft, creamy and not ‘lamby’ at all. The best way I can describe them is like a million-pound chicken nugget! I cooked these Keith Floyd-style in my town centre, but you can do it wherever. Give it a go!!


Ingredients


  • 2 x egg yolks

  • Salt

  • Mustard powder

  • Olive oil

  • Garlic

  • Mint leaves

  • Lemon juice

  • Lamb sweetbreads

  • Plain flour

  • Cayenne pepper

  • Groundnut oil


Method


  • Make a simple aioli by using two egg yolks, a pinch of salt and mustard powder. Slowly add medium olive oil before chopping up garlic and adding it to the mixture. Finish it off with some chopped mint leaves and lemon juice.

  • It's essential to soak the meat in boiling water and salt first. The membrane around the meat will come off easily.

  • For these nuggets, I'm making a devilled flour coating that packs a punch! I'm starting off with plain flour, plenty of cayenne pepper, mustard powder and salt before giving it a good mix. Then, I'm giving the sweetbreads a good coating and shaking them in the mixture.

  • Heat up some oil on the fire. I'm using groundnut oil as it has a high smoking point. In go the sweetbreads. Once they're in the frying pan leave the flour until it gets crispy-crispy. A minute on each side should do the job. Place the sweetbreads on kitchen paper to drain any excess oil before frying the remaining pieces.

  • Serve the nuggets with a pot of aioli and a good pinch of salt. Next-level sweetbreads with a kick!
