Lamb Shank and Quince Tagine

Serves four (Gluten Free, Dairy Free)

The lightly perfumed quince is well suited to Moroccan flavours where fruit often plays a part in savoury dishes. And you can’t get more Moroccan than a tagine! If you don’t actually have a tagine, you can use a Dutch oven or casserole dish and cook in the oven.


You can swap the shanks out for diced lamb shoulder or lamb neck.
