  • 2 tbsp quince paste or redcurrant jelly (optional)

  • Herb Salad

  • 1 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves, coarsely chopped

  • 1/2 cup mint leaves, coarsely chopped

  • 6 pink radishes, chopped

  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

    Place chopped onion, carrot and garlic in baking dish or disposable foil baking tray. Place lamb on top. Cover with foil and bake in oven or bbq for 3 hours. Place lamb on warm platter and lightly cover to rest for 20 minutes. Drain cooking juices through sieve, discard the vegetables. Spoon off or remove fat (see tip) and place liquid in large frying pan. Cook over high heat until reduced to ½ cup (125ml) of liquid. Add quince paste or jelly, if using, and stir until combined.
