  • In a small bowl, combine the whole-grain mustard, crème fraîche, honey and a pinch each of cayenne and black pepper; whisk until smooth.

  • Remove the lamb from the bag and scrape off the marinade. Heat the olive oil in a skillet. Season the lamb with salt and black pepper, add it to the skillet and cook over high heat until browned, about 3 minutes on each side for medium rare. Transfer the lamb to a cutting board, cover with foil and let stand for 10 minutes.

  • Thinly slice the lamb, fold the pieces and spear them on wooden picks. Transfer to a platter and serve immediately with the mustard dipping sauce.
