Slow-cooked lamb shoulder with stout
Slow-cooked lamb shoulder with stout | It is not uncommon to see lamb paired with honey, especially in the Middle East and North Africa. In many Moroccan recipes, cooked lamb is drizzled with honey or added to tagines. The sweet, dark honey flavours in stout are perfect with lamb, and the combination makes for a great slow-cooked recipe. Don’t eat this straight from the oven — leave it for an hour or so and drink with a slightly chilled stout.

King prawns with spiced honey, butter and crispy capers
King prawns with spiced honey, butter and crispy capers | A prawn on the barbie screams Australia. I love the flavour a slightly charred shell gives and I especially enjoy the extra flavour you get from all the goodness found in a prawn head. This recipe can be just as easily done on a barbecue or chargrilled on your stove. Preparing prawns this way can be a little fiddly, but it’s worth it as the shell protects the flesh and, once cooked, it’s very easy to get to all the succulent meat.
