Stir over medium heat for a few minutes, until fragrant. Cool and grind coarsely with a mortar and pestle. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the garlic and 3 tablespoons of the oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Add to the lamb and toss well to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least two hours or up to overnight.

Wine suggestions from Winsor Dobbin Oxford Landing 2004 Shiraz – Anyone looking for a cheap and cheerful red to enjoy with a barbecue won’t go far wrong with this juicy, fruity little number – the perfect partner for some gourmet sausages. You can taste the sunshine as you sup on the rich, ripe fruit, which has just a touch of peppery spice. Great with just about any meat dish and excellent value given the RRP is $7.95.
