  3. Preheat a pan and add the oil. Add the lamb and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side. Remove from the heat and leave to rest for a few minutes.
  4. For the couscous salad, heat the oil in a pan and add the red onion and pepper. Cook until soft. Add the apricots and take off the heat.
  5. Mix together the couscous and the onion and pepper mixture.
  6. To serve you can mix cut up the lamb and mix it into the couscous.
Delicious hot or cold. It will last for a couple of days in the fridge.
