For the lamb

  • Preheat oven to 160 degrees celsius, mix salt and spice mix together
  • Rub spice/salt mix completely over lamb shoulder, sear in preheated pan over medium heat
  • Place into oven tray, add 1 cup of water or stock if you have it, cover tightly with foil to keep in moisture. Double wrap if required
  • Place into oven, check after 1 hour and top up water if necessary. Check after another hour-using a fork or tongs try and pull the meat apart. Continue cooking until desired tenderness

Pickled onion

  • Place all ingredients except for red onion into pot and bring to boil
  • Cut red onion into wedges
  • Remove pickling liquid from heat and add onions
  • Refrigerate immediately

Garlic sauce

  • Place all ingredients except for veg oil into food processor or blending jar for use with stick blender
  • Blitz ingredients until you have reached a smooth consistency
  • Working very slowly, incorporate all of the vegetable oil. Pause to allow the veg oil to emulsify if you see it pooling at the top


Stuff pita pockets with generous toppings and drizzle with garlic sauce- enjoy!
