LAMBO!


The next recipe am going to share, is the classic lamb skewer.

Much like the previous blog post, you just need a little bit of patience and time.


The trick to making sure that the lamb is juicy, but not tough, is the marination, people tend to overlook this part, as they don't think that it contributes to anything except the flavour, but it also contributes to the breaking down of the protein in order to have a really soft and delicious pice of meat.

The other thing that a lot of people tend to oversee, is the resting time of the lamb before it is served,.

The rule is, rest it for half the time you cook it, so for example if you cook it 5 minutes, then restitutions for 2 and half minutes before you serve it.

If you don't the meat tends to be very tough.
