The bank holiday is fast approaching, and if you are traditional and like to eat lamb on Easter Sunday, you will love to read our ideas on what dishes to cook.
– Slow roasted lamb
Roast lamb is the most obvious choice, but there are lots of ways to make this delicious dish.
For a start, you could slow roast your leg of lamb with rosemary, garlic and even anchovies. This Provencal-themed meal is effortless, as you just have to leave it to cook on a low temperature for several hours, and tastes delicious.
All the flavours stew together and your lamb will fall off the bone when ready. Serve with a gravy made from red wine and potatoes boulangeres, which is a side of thinly-sliced potato cooked in lamb stock until tender.
– Roast lamb saddle
If you like to be creative in the kitchen, roast lamb saddle is the recipe for you, as it calls upon complex cooking skills that will really wow your guests.
Alternatively, you can hire a private chef in Lincolnshire to whip up dinner this weekend, and your loved ones will leave equally impressed with their meal.
You’ll need a boneless saddle of lamb, which you season before placing cooked garlic cloves and blanched spinach over the top. Fold the saddle over so the ends overlap and tie with butcher’s string two to three centimetres apart. After leaving to rest for half an hour, seal it in the frying pan and then cook in the oven for 20 minutes. Finally, let it rest for ten minutes and serve with runner beans and potatoes.
– Moroccan lamb
Why not have a Moroccan take on Easter lunch with a harissa-spiced lamb shoulder, served with a tahini and parsley sauce?
Marinade the lamb shoulder in harissa before roasting for around four hours, until it pulls apart. A sauce made with tahini, yoghurt, lemon juice, garlic, oil and parsley will go perfectly with the spicy meat, so this is certainly one to try.
