The salty goats cheese with the deliciously sweet honey roasted apricot pairs fantastically with the tender herb crusted lamb cannon. 

Ingredients

  • 1 lamb cannon
  • 30g black garlic gloves
  • 60g ragstone goats cheese
  • 300g old bread
  • 100g picked herbs (parsley, basil, tarragon, chive)
  • 2 eggs
  • 100g plain flour
  • 2 ripe apricots
  • 25ml honey
  • 25ml white balsamic vinegar
  • A few sprigs of thyme
  • Extra virgin olive oil for finishing the dish


1

Place the black garlic in the freezer the day before, this will firm the garlic cloves enough to stuff them in the cannon.

2

Roughly dice the stale bread and place in a jug blender along with your choice of fresh herbs and a pinch of salt. Blend until the whole herbs have disappeared and the crumb is green throughout.

3

Using a wooden spoon handle or something similar, bore and hole in the centre of the cannon, from one end to the other. Then stuff the cannon with the frozen black garlic and be sure to fill the entire cavity.

4

Roll the lamb cannon in the flour, followed by the whisked egg and finally the herb crumb. Be sure that the crumb has coated the entire cannon. Tightly roll in clingfilm and set aside in the fridge until ready to cook.

5

In a small saucepan, bring to the boil the honey and vinegar with the thyme leaves. Halve the apricots and remove the stone. Place on a baking tray and drizzle with the honey syrup, ragstone cheese and a pinch of sea salt. Either cook under a hot grill for a few minutes or bake in the oven and blow torch to caramelise. Finish with a few splashes of extra virgin olive oil.

6

Finish the dish by cooking the lamb. Seal in a good quality non stick pan. Make sure all sides are coloured and the crumb has formed a seal around the lamb. Finish in the oven at 180oc for 3-4 minutes. Rest for 5 minutes before carving and platting.
