  1. Lamb is frightfully expensive here in Mauritius so my hubby and I are really looking forward to enjoying lamb again when we return home at the end of June.
    Your marinade sounds fabulous and I like the combination of veggies and mash you served it with.

      1. I am South African and looking forward to returning to home soil.
        It has been quite something getting used to the food here – the local produce is very limited and quite often there are day to day items that I am not able to get for weeks on end, which has been extremely frustrating and we have calculated that it costs approximately 50% more here for food than it does back home. There are shopping mall developments at the moment with stores from back home that are going to open which will make a big difference for the availability of foods – we will have returned home by the time that they are finished though.
        Mauritius is a beautiful country but sadly it is also very poor with a lot of derelict homes and there are hundreds of thousands of stray dogs who are in very poor health roaming the streets – it is heart breaking and I battle with it every single day! We have just heard that the government has retracted their donation to the non profit organisation who travel the island sterilising and medicating the strays!
        My hubby and I have 2 kitties that adopted us during our stay and we are in the process of getting them micro chipped and vaccinated to take home with us. :-)
        Sorry a very long response to your question. :-)

      2. Wow, I didn’t know that much about the country’s economy or political situation…that’s sad. I just know that his wife makes good curry! Glad to hear that you’ll be returning home soon!

  2. That lamb looks wonderful – so tender and juicy! I like the combination of herbs and spices too. And anything with rosemary…I LOVE how that makes the kitchen smell. I’m sure that your uncle would have enjoyed this! :)

      1. Thanks a lot! I read the WordPress help and couldn’t figure it out, but I could probably email them…so don’t worry about it too much. Hope you have a good weekend!

  3. Beautiful presentation! I love lamb but it’s just so bloody expensive! My fav is leg of lamb, rotisserie style, with rosemary and garlic cloves placed inside the lamb by creating pockets in the meat with a knife and finished off with a little olive oil, pepper and salt rub. Simple but absolutely to die for!

  4. That looks incredible. I’ve just gotten my husband into eating lamb (he had a sparse pallet growing up… his parents idea of mac and cheese was elbow pasta with American cheese melted on it..) and there are quite a few local farms that grow their own meats. Can’t wait to get some really fresh lamb one of these days!

  5. We recently had a whole butchered lamb given to us from one of our clients, and I am looking forward to trying your recipe! I can already smell it roasting in the oven!
    Thanks so much for sharing your recipe; it’s not often you see a good lamb recipe that’s as easy as this one…where all the ingredients are easily found in my spice cupboard.

  6. This turned out beautifully for you! lovely mouth watering photos. I made stuffed roast shoulder of lamb for Easter. It was pricey but oh so worth it. It was stuffed with fresh tarragon and spinach. The stuffing was bound together with 100g ground pork mince (Swiss family recipe) The marinate was similar to yours. Sadly, we were so keen to eat it that we forgot to take a photo. Yum
