If you have rack of lamb – cut into cutlets or buy as cutlets.

2. Then mix the shrimp paste and ground peppercorns into a paste in a pestle and mortar or blend in small blender.

3. Add the mint and Vietnamese mint to the garlic, ginger paste.

4. Reserve a third of the mixture for the dipping sauce.

5. Rub the remaining paste on the lamb – coat well.

6. Wrap the pandan leaves around each cutlet and secure with a cocktail stick. Leave to marinade in the fridge for a couple of hours. The longer the better (overnight preferably).
