Nutrition: per serving



  • 1 kg Lamb Shoulder bone-in
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 3 cloves Garlic minced
  • 2 tbsp Harissa Paste
  • 1 tsp Cumin Powder
  • 1 tsp Coriander Powder
  • 1 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • Coriander for garnish


  • Preheat the oven to 160°C (fan-assisted).
  • In a small bowl, mix together the minced garlic, harissa paste, ground cumin, ground coriander, smoked paprika, and ground cinnamon to make a spice paste.
  • Place the lamb shoulder in a roasting tray and rub it all over with olive oil, then season generously with salt and black pepper.
  • Spread the spice paste evenly over the lamb, covering it entirely.
  • Roast the lamb in the preheated oven for approximately 1 hour, or until it reaches your desired level of doneness. For medium-rare, aim for an internal temperature of 55-60°C; for medium, aim for 60-65°C.
  • Once cooked, remove the lamb from the oven and allow it to rest for 10-15 minutes before slicing.
  • Garnish with fresh coriander leaves before serving.
