Why not try?

Impress your friends without breaking a sweat. This low effort, high impact recipe has so many layers of flavour. The sweetness of the lamb balances the smoky umami depth of the aubergine and miso purée, while the crispy soba noodles adds a pleasing contrast of texture. The crystal clear and bone dry Gekkeikan Gensen Sozai Junmai Sake gives the whole dish a refined and polished edge.

1
Put the lamb into a large sandwich bag and add all the marinade ingredients. Seal the bag and squidge everything together, so the lamb is fully and evenly coated. Pop the bag in the fridge and leave to marinate overnight or for up to 24 hours

To make the aubergine and miso purée, press a barbecue skewer through an aubergine and place it directly over a gas hob ring. Turn the aubergine every now and then until the skin has charred and blackened all over. Scoop out the flesh and discard the burnt skin

3
Combine the miso, sugar and tamari in a small saucepan over a gentle heat and whisk until the miso and sugar have dissolved. Remove from the heat and add the aubergine pulp. Use a stick blender to blitz the mixture into a smooth purée. Set aside to reheat just before serving
4
Preheat the oven to the hottest setting
5
Brush off most of the excess marinade and place the lamb on a baking tray, fat side up. Roast for 5 minutes, before turning the heat down to 200˚C/gas mark 6 and roast for a further 10–15 minutes, depending on how pink you like your meat. Leave the lamb to rest tented with foil
6
To make the noodles, simply boil them in salted water according to the packet’s instructions, drain and toss in the oil and sesame seeds. Decant the oiled noodles into a hot wok or frying pan over a medium to high heat and use a fork or chopsticks to turn the noodles over until evenly browned and crispy
7
To plate up, slice the lamb and place it on a smear of aubergine and miso purée and scatter over some finely sliced spring onions. Serve alongside the crispy sesame soba noodles and dust over the seaweed powder
