Cooking Method

This Scotch Lamb Tagine is a fantastic way to impress your dinner guest with some delicious North African flavours.  It’s great with cous cous and natural yoghurt on the side and maybe even a wedge of lime and some fresh coriander and mint to liven things up.

  1. Set your oven to 160C.
  2. Start by adding a splash of olive oil, onions, garlic, ginger and spices to an ovenproof casserole dish on a medium heat and season.
  3. Add the diced lamb and stir in the tomato puree, the chopped tomatoes and the honey.
  4. Bring it to a simmer, pop the lid on and place it in the oven for 1 and a half hours until the lamb is perfectly cooked and tender.

Tip: remove the lid half way through so that the juices start to reduce and really intensify in flavour.
