Preparation time: 30 min

Chop a coriander branch and remove the leaves from another.
Cut the lamb into lanyards or strips.
Peel the garlic and halve.
Boil the water with the tea then drop the raisins into the tea.
Brunoise (small cubes) the green apples.
Toast the almonds and set aside.
- Lamb shoulder lanyards
In a mixing bowl, combine the lamb, cumin, olive oil, rosemary, garlic and onion quarters. Mix well and set aside in fridge for 24h ideally, or as long as is possible.
In a hot frying pan, with a thread of oil, sear the lamb on all sides and then place in an oven proof pan. Cook for 8-10 minutes then place on a plate and cover with aluminum foil.
Remove the excess oil and fat the cooking pan, then deglaze with water to remove the cooking juices, season and set aside.
- Semolina salad
Remove the raisins from the tea. Bring the tea back to a boil and then pour it in a mixing bowl with the semolina. Cover with plastic wrap. Let cook for 5 minutes.
In a frying pan, place the honey to lightly caramelize it, then add the apples, raisins and almonds. Continue to caramelize for 2 minutes or until you reach a nice golden brown color. Next add the cooked semolina to the frying pan and fluff it with the help of a fork. Keep at room temperature. When ready to serve, simply add the chopped coriander.
- PlatingIn a round plate, with a ring mold, make a bed of semolina salad. Place the lamb beside and on top of the salad. Garnish with coriander leaves and the cooking juice from the lamb.
If you dont have time to marinate 24h, that's fine. The end result will be better the longer you marinate, up to a maximum of 24h.
