Pass the flatbreads …

Ingredients (Serves 4 - 6)

100g Tracklements Zingy Rosemary Jelly

1 tbsp cumin 

2 cloves garlic, minced 

Juice and zest of 1 lemon 

2 onions, sliced

1 shoulder of lamb, bone in 1½ - 2kg

Salt and pepper 

1 tbsp Tracklements Zingy Rosemary Jelly

100g natural yoghurt


To serve:  

Flat breads 

Pomegranate seeds


  • Preheat oven to 160°C/ 325°F/gas mark 3. 
  • In a small bowl, mix together the Tracklements Zingy Rosemary Jelly, cumin, garlic, lemon juice and zest.  
  • Throw the sliced onion into the base of a deep-sided roasting tray. Lightly score the lamb and season generously. Place the lamb on top of the onions. Pour the glaze over the lamb – and give it a little rub to get the glaze into the scored meat. Add 200ml water to the base of the tray. Cover the lamb/tray in silver foil.
  • Roast the lamb for 3hrs before removing the foil and continue roasting for a further 20-30 mins or until the lamb has a good colour. Remove any excess fat from the tray and then pour the juices over the lamb.
  • Stir a tablespoon of Tracklements Zing Rosemary Jelly until loose, then mix into the yoghurt.
  • Shred the lamb with two forks and serve with flat breads, pomegranate seeds drizzled with the rosemary yoghurt.
