  • Hummus

Method

Part one

Put all the rub spices (apart from the Lemon Peel) into a hot pan and toast till it smells great.

Grind it up in a pestle and mortar, adding the preserved lemon and grind until it’s a salty sour paste

Make thin slices in the meat and fat and work the paste into these grooves and leave for at least 4-6 hours or overnight

Part two

Put all the flatbread ingredients in a mixing bowl with a pinch of salt, add a bit of olive oil until it comes together nicely.

Separate into two and roll out to a rough egg shape.

Part three

Get a pan really hot and fry the meat until you have a fantastic black crust on the outside of the lamb. It won’t take long for the lamb to cook maybe 2-3 mins each side.

Once cooked put aside to rest while you make the flatbreads.

Dry fry the bread in a hot pan or griddle pan for a few minutes each side until they have a nice colour.

Part four

Arrange the flatbreads on a board and spread with hummus, place the hot crispy meat on the hummus and delicately place raw radish, mint and red chilli on top before serving.
