    I am very partial to your recipes…they are wonderful!
    I made this using the faster couscous, and also added fresh basil with the mint. I’ve used this with all kinds of dishes, however I do love the lamb. I’ve even served it cold as a side dish with Shabbos lunch. Yum!

  2. Thank you so much Mushi. I love feedback, it’s so important. With everybody enjoying different tastes and textures, feedback is important. I have to admit, this recipe is one of my family’s favourites too! My first book ‘Cooking with the KBW’ also has some wonderful lamb recipes cooked with fresh ‘minty’ herbs and rosemary which go so well with lamb.
    You must try the lemon kicked lamb shanks!! There are also some great ideas with breasts of lamb and wonderful South African Tomato Lamb Breedie. (Great for Shabbos)
    Thanks once again.
