Remove the lamb from the packet 20 minutes before you wish to cook it and allow it to come to room temperature. (This is called blooming, and it allows the odour to fade and the meat to return to its natural bright colour.) Season with salt, pepper and cumin.
Heat the olive oil in a heavy-based frypan. When it is hot, add the lamb and brown all over (about 2-3 minutes each side). Remove from pan, cover with tin foil and a clean teatowel and allow to rest for 5 minutes.
While lamb is resting, prepare the salad. Combine rocket, cucumber, tomatoes, red onion, feta, olives, mint and red peppers in a bowl and drizzle with olive oil and lemon juice. Thinly slice lamb across the grain, add to the salad with any resting juices and toss gently to combine. Divide between 4 plates and serve immediately.
