Lamb

Elena Duggan

Ingredients:

  • 1 lamb shoulder, boneless 900-1300g
  • 6 French shallots, roughly chopped
  • 25g / 1bunch chopped sage
  • 25g / 1bunch chopped thyme
  • 2 Lemons, zest only, reserve juice
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 50g EVOO
  • 6 Lebanese eggplant
  • 6 Zucchini

Dressing

  • 1lge red onion, finely diced
  • 2lge tomatoes, finely diced
  • 25g capers, losely chopped
  • 2 gloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 bunch basil, leaves only, finely chopped
  • 1bunch Flat leaf parsley, finely chopped
  • 100g EVOO
  • 75g red wine vinegar

Method:

  1. Preheat the barbecue to high (or Griddle Pan)
  2. Prepare the marinade minimum 20 minutes, but up to 24 hours ahead of time is fine, either in a mortar and pestle or food processor, blitz the shallots, sage, thyme, lemon zest, garlic and slowly drizzle in the EVOO until well combined. Spread evenly all over the lamb on all sides, allow to sit at room temperature for 20 minutes before cooking.
  3. Slice eggplant and zucchini in halves or strips, brush with olive oil and season, set aside for cooking.
  4. Place lamb shoulder on barbecue, flipping twice throughout cooking (approx. 30 minutes) until internal temperature is 65º Celsius for medium rare. Allow meat to rest for ten minutes before carving.
  5. Whilst meat is resting, cook the vegetables over the barbecue, flipping once. When softened through and grill marks are visible, pile them onto a platter or board.
  6. Whilst vegetables are cooking, combine all dressing ingredients in a bowl and set aside to serve.
  7. Carve lamb into 1cm slices, place on top of vegetables and dress all, generously.
  8. Serve with yoghurt flatbread to fold and eat – no utensils necessary.

Our friends at Wine Selectors recommend pairing this dish with a Shiraz Durif or Durif.
