Even the most perfectly roasted rack of organic lamb can be a bit dull without something to spice it up!
Herbs and spices are a great addition to any organic or grass-fed lamb dish, and it’s hard to get it wrong. You can experiment with different seasonings and pick something that suits your family’s tastes, whether it’s sweet and pungent aromas or a spicy kick you’re after.
You’ll most likely have some or even all of the following herbs and spices lying around in the pantry, so next time you’re cooking up that lamb roast or casserole, try adding a dash of flavour with one of these.
It’s perhaps something that should garnish almost any meat dish, and rosemary works especially well with grilled lamb.
You’ll notice a definite zest added to your lamb that won’t overpower its natural flavours.
For more of a distinctive and penetrating flavour, you might want to add a sprig or two of thyme to your casserole.
It’s also great for stuffing your lamb along with other goodies such as mushrooms!
Basil is a great choice when you want to add a sweet, fragrant air to your lamb without taking away from its natural meat taste.
For best results, it’s a good idea to throw it in when your dish is almost done so you’ll get the most flavour out if it.
These tiny seeds, with their powerful and pungent fragrance, work well with a huge range of lamb dishes.
You can add them to a variety of lamb-based curries or stir fries, or even coat your lamb with it before grilling it to perfection.
