Harissa Shoulder of Lamb


A lovely alternative to a Sunday roast, this harissa lamb will not disappoint. Prepped in 5 minutes and left to slowly cook in the oven, this recipe could not be more simple. I served it with a roasted vegetable salad and couscous.



1 shoulder of lamb

3 onions - chopped into chunks

2 tablespoons harissa paste - I used Belazu new Apricot Harissa

Mint & Pomegranate seeds to serve



1 clove garlic

1 bunch coriander

10 mint leaves

1 teaspoon ground cumin

Juice of half lemon

2 tablespoons olive oil

Salt & pepper



Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.

Rub the lamb with the harissa and place on top of the onions in a large roasting tin. Roast in the oven for 30-35 minutes to get some lovely colour, then turn the oven down to 170 degrees for a further 3.5 - 4 hours. It’s ready when the meat is tender and falling apart. Remove from the oven to rest for at least 30 minutes before carving.


Blitz the sauce together in a mini chopper
