Roast Lamb with Anchovies and Garlic

Posted By Stephen


Today we had a leg of lamb for the first time in ages. We inserted little pieces of anchovy and garlic into it before roasting. The anchovy melted away and gave the lamb a lovely flavour without being fishy at all. It was a good thing too because it wasn’t the best lamb – next time we have lamb we need to plan in advance instead of just buying it from Waitrose. Waitrose with their irritating “lamb imported from the other side of the world only” policy.

We served it with roast potatoes, parsnips, spring greens, peas and gravy. And some home made mint sauce that we’d done in a rush and was not very good: another thing to plan in advance next time.

On the subject of mint, our mint plant is doing well and we repotted it to a larger pot today. Mojitoes for all!

    I’ll come round for mojitoes… mint is overtaking our garden – the previous owners planted it in a number of places and not in pots – the best thing about it is it’s the one patch of green on the ‘lawn’ (aka brown bit)

    I think there are worse things to have going wild in your garden than mint but it can be a pain 🙂

    One of the problems with it is the more you pick it, the more you end up with so all those emergency mojitoes don’t really solve any problems at all; they just create more!
