Sea & Vines Festival


with anchovy gremolata, asparagus and roast potatoes.

Serves 4 people (with leftovers)


2 tsp. sea salt flakes

2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

1/2 cup water

4 all-purpose potatoes

(Sebago, Pontiac), peeled and quartered

2 bunches asparagus (ends trimmed)


4 plump anchovy fillets

1/4 cup of parsley leaves

1/4 cup mint leaves

1.5kg whole lamb shoulder (bone in)

2 shallots (roughly chopped)

4 garlic cloves

1 tsp. ground cumin

1 tsp. ground coriander

4 sprigs rosemary (leaves picked)

4 sprigs thyme (leaves picked)

1 lemon (zested and juiced)

2 Tbsp. olive oil, (plus 2 Tbsp. extra)


- Preheat oven to 140ºC (fan forced). In a small food processor blitz together shallots, garlic, cumin, coriander, rosemary, thyme and lemon until paste forms. Stir though

2 tablespoons olive oil, salt and pepper.

- Place lamb shoulder in a large roasting tray and pierce the skin with a sharp knife.

Rub marinade all over lamb shoulder, cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours (overnight ideally). Place the lamb into the preheated oven and for 3 hours or until tender.

- Meanwhile, start preparing the potatoes after the lambs has been cooking for 2½ hours. Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with cold water. Place lid on pot and bring to the boil over high heat. Take off the lid once the water has started to boil and cook for another 10-12 minutes until tender. Drain potatoes, shaking them a little to break them up a bit. Place potatoes on baking tray, coat with 2 tablespoons olive oil and season with sea salt flakes.

- Turn oven up to 190º. Place potatoes in oven into the lamb tray. Roast both potatoes and lamb for 20-30 minutes. You want to develop a nice golden crust on the lamb and to crisp up the potatoes. Remove lamb from oven and rest for 15 minutes. Add asparagus

to the potatoes, toss to combine, and roast for another 15 minutes while lamb is resting.

- To prepare gremolata, roughly chop all ingredients and combine in a small bowl.

- Serve lamb shoulder on a big platter, with potatoes, asparagus and gremolata.
