A: Got lamb?

I know it’s not necessarily a mid-week type of meal, but this is a meal so simple I could possibly do it with my eyes closed! 10 minutes of prep and 60 minutes to roast an easy-carve leg of lamb makes this meal an all-round winner for the busy cook.

Olive paste

Combine in a food processor:

1. 2 handfuls of kalamata olives, drained

2. 2 anchovy fillets (or anchovy stuffed olives)

3. 2 red chillies

4. 3 cloves garlic

5. 1 quarter preserved lemon, rinsed (skin and flesh)

6. leaves from 3 sprigs of rosemary

7. Enough olive oil to lubricate processor

8. 2 tsp mild paprika

9. 1 tsp smoked paprika

Process tiill smooth. Cover the leg of lamb in paste, dot with butter and season with pepper.

Roast till required doneness and enjoy! (Roast potatoes and veggies in the same pan for an even easier 1-pot meal.)
