      Lamb tangine with potato's 

      The Tagine is one of the most common street foods in Morocco, and lamb is the most commonly used ingredients, we chose to use new potatoes over the traditional method of dicing them, however the choice is up to you.  Frozen Peas work Best if you want to keep the vibrance and bright green color.




      4 lamb shanks (3 pounds 5 ounces/1.5 kg total)
      2 medium onions (10 1/2 ounces/300 g total), halved and cut into thin wedges
      2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
      1 teaspoon paprika
      1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
      1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
      1/2 teaspoon finely ground black pepper
      Good pinch of saffron threads
      Sea salt
      1/4 cup (60 ml) extra-virgin olive oil
      1/4 bunch flat-leaf parsley (2 ounces/50 g), most of the bottom stems discarded, finely chopped
      1/4 bunch cilantro (2 ounces/50 g), most of the bottom stems discarded, finely chopped
      1 pound 2 ounces (500 g) new potatoes, scrubbed clean and left whole if very small or halved if medium
      9 ounces (250 g) fresh or thawed frozen petits pois (see Note)
      Moroccan bread, for serving
      1. Put the shanks, onions, garlic, spices, and a little salt into a large pot. Add water to barely cover, about 4 cups and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Add the oil, then reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover and cook for 30 minutes. Turn the shanks over in the sauce and cook for another 15 minutes. Turn the meat again and cook for another 15 minutes, or until the meat is tender. If the shanks are not tender after an hour, cook for 15 to 30 minutes longer, adding a little more water.
      2. When the meat is tender, add the herbs (reserving a little cilantro for garnish) and potatoes and cook for another 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are just done. Add the peas and cook uncovered for another few minutes, until the peas are cooked. Taste and adjust the seasoning if necessary. If the sauce is still runny, let it bubble hard uncovered until the sauce has thickened.
      3. Transfer meat and vegetables to a serving dish. Garnish with the reserved cilantro and serve very hot with Moroccan bread.
