Harissa Roasted Leg of Lamb

Tuesday Dinner

- Harissa Roasted Leg of Lamb
- Roasted Vegetables (Pumpkin, Turnips, Carrots)
- Fried Wild Mushrooms with Bacon

With Harissa paste, it is easy to make Moroccan style dishes.  It goes so well with lamb.  I love the exotic flavour of Harissa, just the right amount of heat with pungent cumin.  I always have a jar in the fridge.

Harissa Paste Recipe (Makes approx. 250ml)


  • 1 Red capsicum (about 180g)
  • 3~4 Long red chillies (about 30~50g)

  1. Remove the seeds of a red capsicum and roughly chop a capsicum and chillies
  2. Blend all in a blender until smooth, store in a clean jar in the fridge
