Fry red onion in olive oil 5 mins, add 1tsp each of ground turmeric, cumin & black pepper & 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Add 4 lamb shanks & fry until bronzed (don’t let spices burn). Add 2 large tomatoes 1/4rd plus 600ml water & bring to boil. Salt to taste, cover ... 

Dried figs also good

Great recipe, my friend. I’m sure you enjoyed it!

Moroccon style is the best way to enjoy lamb shanks

Looking mouthwatering good! πŸ‘

Sorry gentlemen - it has been devoured πŸ˜‹

A sweet of pears in honey, orange blossom & cardamom also all gone. Even the red wine too πŸ™‚

Truly delicious looking...

I know you were already thinking of a WatchProSite cookbook but maybe a Chez Giles is an equally interesting business proposition? πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ˜πŸ˜‹

It has occurred to me, my friend!

However turning a weekend passion into a 24/7 business can have its challenges? Cheers! Giles.

It’s certainly a very different proposition

 By: KMII : May 5th, 2019-11:31
But I can imagine you both having a knack for it and enjoying it 😊

Love to make & BBQ lamb, yogout, sumac & mint kebabs in the summer
