With Easter Sunday around the corner, many home-cooks, chefs and the like are busy preparing a menu for the big feast that takes place in just two days. For some, the tradition of serving ham as the main course remains a staple. However, I would like to share with you one of my favorite alternatives : the lamb.
With a quick and simple marinade, a few shocks on the grill and a nice side dish of roasted potatoes or haricot verts, this grilled leg of lamb recipe outshines anything else you had in mind for Sunday dinner. The beauty of this dish is in the marinade. Red wine vinegar, garlic, herbs and a touch of spicy mustard lend the lamb a flavor profile that is greatly intensified once the meat is smacked on a hot grill. Flames arise, surround the meat and given a few minutes, your dinner is prepared. Read More
This Senegalese inspired lamb stew makes for a delicious dinner. Fragrant with peanuts and coconut milk, the stew brings a bit of West Africa into your home.
I like to serve it alongside sauteed morning glory, a typical West African ingredient. If you can’t find morning glory, substitute any earthy green like chard or kale. More than enough for one meal, this stew reheats well for midweek lunches.
A rack of lamb is an investment, but one you will be happy you made. The tender meat is encased in a savory miso crust, which pairs perfectly with the flavorful curry.
This dish is a combination of flavors from the east, taking its cues from Japanese ingredients and Southeast Asian curries. Enjoy for a special weekend celebration, after all, you deserve a delicious meal.
