Stirfried Lamb Sweetbreads with Garlic and Rosemary by Gordon Ramsay

Sweetbreads are the pancreas and thymus glands of veal, lamb and pork. The thymus gland has an elongated shape, while the pancreas is larger and has an oval shape. Both of them are velvety creamy, tender and moist. And unlike many other organ meats, like kidneys or liver, sweetbreads have a rather mild flavour. Traditionally, they are given a seasoned flour coating and fried until golden and crisp. For me, that’s overkilling the delicate flavour of sweetbread. So I have opted to quick stirfry them instead. They taste the tenderest and best when they just start to colour all over, about 5 minutes.
Before cooking, it’s advisable to soak them in water, or milk in advance to remove impurities, and enable the sinew and membranes to be removed easily. You should also change the water a couple times. To further remove impurities from sweetbreads, you might also want to blanch them shortly and shock in ice water before cooking. This time I skipped the step and didn’t taste the difference.

  • 500 g Lamb sweetbreads
  • 1 sprig Fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 clove, Garlic, minced
  • 3-4 tbsp Tallow or ghee or olive oil
  • 1 tbsp Sherry vinegar
  • Hawaiian black lava sea salt
  • Pink peppercorns, for garnishing
  • A handful of arugula
  1. Place the lamb sweetbreads in a bowl and cover with cold water. Drain the water and repeat one more time, then fill the bowl again with fresh water, leaving the sweetbreads to soak for an hour, then drain well.
  2. Finely chop rosemary and garlic. Set aside.
  3. Add the tallow to a pan, place over a moderate heat and add the chopped rosemary and garlic. Cook gently for 2 minutes until softened and aromatic. Add the sweetbreads and cook until they just start to colour all over, about 5 minutes. If you prefer them more caramelized and crisp, then continue to cook for a few more minutes.
  4. Once the sweetbreads are cooked to your liking, deglaze the pan with sherry vinegar and season well with black lava salt.
  5. To serve, arrange a bed of arugula salad on the plate. Top with the lamb sweetbreads, then crush some pink peppercorns over. Drizzle some pan sauce over.

Ready in just 15 minutes, this recipe is easy and super-fast yet jam-packed full of layers of delicious flavours.
The sweet and spicy flavours of the honey chili sauce are perfect with the prawns. And the light and creamy avocado whip comes together with just 5 ingredients and complements the whole dish so deliciously. It can be served as a dip or as a sauce. Add your own touches with fresh herbs like coriander, basil or parsley.
I used ready-cooked prawns from ALDI, but you can of course get some raw jumbo prawns and cook yourself.

Chilli-Honey Sauce Avocado Whip
  • 250 Cooked prawns
  • Coriander leaves
  • 1/2 Chilli pepper, thinly sliced
  • 2 Garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Shallot, finely chopped
  • 2-3 tbsp Lemon/lime juice
  • 1 tbsp Honey
  • 2 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt
  • 2 ripe avocados, peeled, pitted
  • 60 g Full fat sour cream (or Greek yogurt)
  • 2 tbsp Freshly squeezed lime or lemon juice
  • 1 Garlic clove, crushed
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  1. To make the chilli-honey sauce, in a medium bowl, combine chilli, garlic, shallot, 2 tbsps of lemon/lime juice, honey and oil. Season chilli-honey sauce with salt and more lime juice, if necessary.
  2. To make the whipped avocado crema, in a food processor or blender, process or blend avocado, sour cream, lemon/lime juice, garlic and salt until completely smooth. Spread crema in an even layer over a serving platter.
  3. Coarsely chop 1 tbsp of the coriander. Add to the chilli-honey sauce with the prawns and toss to coat evenly.
  4. Spoon the prawn mixture over the avocado crema on the platter. Sprinkle with the remaining coriander. Drizzle the rest of sauce over.
