Zest of ½ lemon

- Rub both sides of each steak with olive oil and sprinkle Moroccan spice mix (Ras al hanout) and salt.
- Place steaks on an oven tray lined with baking paper. Bake until golden and tender but not too soft that it falls apart.

- Toast the walnuts in another frying pan until fragrant and golden.
- Zest the lemon and mix through the ricotta. Season with salt.
