Pinot Meunier from Württemberg, 2011
This light red wine has a pleasing fruit aroma and possesses a mild flavor which complements the slightly sweet teriyaki taste of the lamb skewers. Recommended temperature is 14 - 18°C/61°F.
Defrost the peas. Remove the seeds from the chilli pepper and chop finely. Finely grate the ginger. Finely dice the garlic clove and shallot.
Sauté the ginger, garlic, and shallot with brown sugar and then add the pineapple juice to deglaze. Reduce to medium heat for approx. 8 – 10 min. or until about a third of the liquid remains.
Add lemon juice, soy sauce, olive oil, mirin, and chopped chili pepper to the marinade and continue to simmer for approx. 5 – 7 min. Then, remove from heat and puree with a hand blender. Leave to cool at room temperature.
Preheat the oven to 180°C/ 355°F. Slice the lamb saddles lengthwise into strips.
Marinade the lamb strips with the cooled mixture for approx. 5 - 10 min.
Spear the lamb strips onto wooden skewers and cook in preheated oven at 180°C/ 355°F for approx. 10 – 12 min.
Use a food processor to puree the defrosted peas with vegetable stock, mint, nutmeg, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle the lamb skewers with sesame seeds and place on the puree to serve.
