APRIL: Roast Lamb

1st April 2021

Lamb is a versatile meat which can be cooked in a variety of ways. In the UK, the most common use of lamb is probably in traditional roast dinners and served with a mint sauce and rosemary. Slow cooked in tagines, minced and grilled into kofta or marinated butterfly leg of lamb – lamb is appearing as a favourite in more barbecue dishes.¬†Most lamb is grass fed which gives a unique flavour, slightly gamey. robust. slightly fragrant and grassy. These flavours come from the lamb’s fat, specifically the branched chain fatty acids.

Garlic and rosemary is a classic pairings for lamb dishes, alongside mint which works so well as it’s able to cut through the fattiness of the lamb. Other pairings include Mediterranean flavours such as aubergine, red pepper and feta. We are recently finding studies showing¬† mackerel compliments lamb well as they share some of the same molecular make up. Alternatively, a dash of coffee can be added to lamb jus to elevate the flavour of the lamb.
