Chermoula Spiced Lamb with Minted Courgette Salad

Chermoula spice; a North African powerhouse of a spice mix. Cumin, paprika, turmeric, cayenne, parsley and coriander. Just enough heat to set your mouth on fire but more than enough taste to not care.

My wife isn’t a big lamb fan, which means I don’t get it that much. When I do I go for the big ticket items, legs, chops. I have never really had that much lamb mince and now after this its hard to understand why. The taste was amazing, that unique flavour that only comes with lamb seemed to be richer, like mincing it concentrated the flavour somehow.

When you have cooked the lamb with the chermoula spice and carrots and onion you add in the soft fleshy part of the aubergines that have been roasting in the oven. After a good stir you fill the skin of the aubergine with the mix and top it with cheese (and we all know that no matter how good something is, it can always be made better with cheese). After a quick grill to give it that nice slightly browning crispy top you are ready to serve.

The courgette is served raw with some chopped mint salt and pepper a drizzle of olive oil and well, another drizzle of olive oil because,  why not.
