It’s the time of year again, when I find myself shouting about the star factor of luscious lamb from thatched cottage rooftops and castle ruins. The good news is that my friends at Lamb – Tasty, Easy, Fun have given me a few lovely lamb recipes to try out like they graciously did last summer as well.
For me, not much else beats the flavour of lamb. Whether in a traditional stew or combined with exotic spices and flavours, lamb is the perfect hero ingredient for everyday meals, whether you’re flying solo or cooking for family or friends.
Lamb is super quick and simple to prepare and can be easily transformed for a variety of ethnic cuisines. Versatility baby! From Moroccan lamb tangines (umm, helllooo!) to spicy lamb quesadillas from Mexico; Ceylon lamb curry from Sri Lanka (chomptastic) to Japanese style lamb yakitori (drool), and not least forgetting delicious lamb burgers and kebabs perfect for al fresco dining over the summer – there is something to suit all tastes and every meal occasion.

For the first of two lamb recipes I will be posting this month, I have prepared a simple, but incredibly divine, lamb + avocado crostini. Aka, avocado toast with gorgeous spicy grilled lamb.
