Poor Trota’s had her trotter trodden on the Tube (really), so, doctor’s orders, Salmon had to take over…
Salmon’s one pot – Shoulder of lamb
Ever aware of preparation time, effort and economy of ingredients (basic, earthy he says…), this week’s recipe can be summarised in two words: hunted and gathered. You will need a shoulder of lamb, 2 potatoes, 3 carrots, a large sweet potato, 4 shallots, sprig of rosemary, couple of bay leaves. In your roasting tin – one with a lid, ideally – put a drizzle of olive oil, rest the lamb and surround it with vegetables, washed and cut in chunks. Cook at 160°/gas mark 3 for about three hours, the last ½ hour uncovered. Serve and tuck in.
A bit basic but Trota did enjoy being wined and dined, for a change.
Oh, and can she also have a cup of tea now, please Salmon?
And, Salmon, don’t forget the double chocolate praline truffle …
Painful – and not just for Trota.
