Tagine of Lamb Shanks

Here’s a great and simple recipe for preparing melt-in-the-mouth lamb shanks using one of the latest additions to our range:

Serves 2
Cooking time: 1½ – 1 ¾ hours

2 lamb shanks
2 onions
One tablespoon of sweet paprika
Two cinnamon sticks
One garlic clove
One small bouquet of fresh thyme
10 soft whole-dried apricots
10 cherry tomatoes
Olive oil
Salt and pepper

Place the tagine on a hot flame, add a dash of the olive oil.
In a container, season the lamb shanks by rubbing with salt, pepper and paprika, and then place them in the tagine and sear on all sides.
Add the garlic clove, the cinnamon stick and the bouquet of fresh thyme.
Quarter the onions and place in the tagine.
Add the cherry tomatoes and apricots, cover with the tagine lid and leave for 1½ to 1¾ hours on a medium flame.   The preparation should simmer slightly while cooking.
Serve with sauted courgettes and a green salad
