Leap like a Lamb and Jump into the Water Bath...

Lamb recipes tend to be exceptionally varied, with meals that offer classic comfort food as well as dishes that boast a more delicate, refined flavour. Take a look at the Leap like a Lamb and Jump into the Water Bath... recipe below as tried and tested by our professional chefs. Our delicious lamb shank, tomato and herb recipe!

  • 1 garlic clove
  • 400g tin tomatoes
  • 20g sugar

Sweat the onions and garlic for 5 minutes.

Add the tomatoes to the onions and cook until thick

Mix the cornflour and the water and add this to the sauce whilst boiling and cook for 1 minute

Roast the lamb shanks in the oven at 250 degrees for 15 minutes, then add the rosemary and chill

When everything is cold, peel the skin from the lamb shank and remove the rosemary from the sauce
