Traditionally, the demand for lamb increases during April and May. When it is well cooked, it’s taste is divine. Preparing the perfect lamb has a few subtleties to learn.

Prior to spicing the meat, remove excess fat and membranes. The spices are cut into small pieces and rubbed into the meat through fat. Wrap it tightly with foil and let stand in a refrigerator overnight. Thus, the spices can flavor the meat.

Lamb itself is very flavorful and will need strong spices. Yet, let's see what spices are appropriate for it.

Its taste best complements the flavor of a lemon peel. Garlic is also great for lamb. It still goes with parsley and lovage. You do not have to use a lot of spices at a time, select a few that you like most and season it with them.

Appropriate way to flavor lamb is infusion. With the tip of a knife, make small incisions in the meat and put pieces of Garlic and spices within it. Leave it to absorb the spices and then roast the meat.

Combine the spices to make a delicious and tasty lamb, but you should be careful with salt. Never salt meat just before cooking. Pre-salting will dry it out.

Once roasted, the meat needs to rest. Leave it for 20 minutes, lightly covered with foil. Thus, all the separated juices will go back into the flesh and will not be lost when cutting.

When buying lamb, be careful, watch the color of the fat on it. If it is white, then the meat is from a young lamb, but if yellow means that the animal is older.

Fresh meat is stored in the refrigerator for up to three days, wrapped in foil.
