Method 

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Dust the surface of the lamb fillets lightly with flour. Mix the mustard and honey together and spread all over the lamb. Combine the mint, seasoning, breadcrumbs and mustard powder and pat the prepared lamb with the mixture to make a crust. Let the fillets rest in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Heat the oil in a heavy based skillet over a high heat and, when very hot, brown each fillet for 3-4 minutes each side.

Salad - cook the potatoes in boiling water for 10-15 minutes until tender, drain. Blanch the broad beans, sugar snaps and asparagus in boiling water for 2-3 minutes. Drain, and combine with the potatoes.

Vinaigrette - put all the ingredients in a blender and blitz until really smooth then season.

Transfer the sealed fillets into a baking dish and place in the oven for 5 minutes for pink centered lamb. Allow to rest before carving into slices.

Toss the salad leaves with a little vinaigrette and arrange on plates. Pile the vegetable mixture on top, season then drizzle over more dressing and scatter with the grana padano. Arrange the warm sliced lamb over the salad and drizzle the remaining vinaigrette over the top.
