Spring brings with it some of our favourite British produce, like our new-season lamb. Here we have six new ways to freshen up your mains menu.
1. Roasted leg of lamb stuffed with leeks and tarragon
If you want to up your Sunday Roast game, try this recipe. The stuffing creates a delicious side dish to serve with your roasted lamb, and Tarragon will add an aroma and taste that will leave everyone at the dinner table wanting more.
Our chef says:
"Take your lamb from the fridge 15-20 minutess before roasting, to get it to room temperature - this helps to achieve an even roast. Use a roasting dish that’s close to the size of the joint so the lamb juices don’t burn.
Baste your joint with the pan juices (use a mixture of olive oil and lemon if you don’t have enough juices). Always rest before carving, this allows the juices to filter back into the meat and makes for a juicier joint."
2. Rosemary-crusted rack of lamb with sticky shallots
This meal is bound to be a winner for dinner on date night. Dressing a rack of lamb with rosemary and other fragrant herbs will make your meal smell good - and taste even better.
3. Lamb chops with rosemary beans
4. Moroccan-spiced lamb burgers with baba ganoush
Delicate but flavoursome, Moroccan spice adds a tasty zing to spring lamb. If you’re lucky enough to be out barbecuing on a sunny day, flame-grill the aubergines for even more flavour.
5. Indian curried lamb with sour cream wrap
If you’re looking for something summery and spicy, try our Indian lamb recipe for a tasty change. These wraps are filling, full of flavour and easy to throw together.
