Alex Mackay's Roast King Edwards with Lamb Cutlets, Smoked Paprika, Peppers, Onions & Olives

"The first time I discovered smoked paprika was on roast potatoes served as tapas with smoked paprika mayonnaise. Before then, I'd assumed chorizo was spiced with plain paprika and then the whole sausage was smoked. It was a revelation and I've had a long lasting smoked paprika period since then. I serve the potatoes and pepper mixture with lamb as a little celebration of Spring."
