Spinneys roasted lamb recipe

Serves 8
Prepare Time: 15 minutes plus marinating
Cook Time: 4 hours 30 minutes


  • 4 garlic cloves
  • zest of 2 lemons
  • 2 x 285g jars Spinneys Marinated Artichokes
  • 100ml oil
  • 100g Spinneys Roasted Mixed Peppers
  • 2 tbsp capers
  • 2 red chillies, deseeded
  • 30g Spinneys Coriander
  • 5kg bone-in lamb shoulder


  1. Put the garlic, lemon zest, artichokes and oil, peppers, capers, chillies and coriander in a blender. Add 1⁄2 tsp sea salt and blitz until smooth.
  2. Put the lamb in a large oiled roasting tray and use a knife to make small incisions all over. Massage with 6 tbsp tapenade, cover and marinate in the fridge for 2 hours, or overnight.
