1 Combine spices, 1 tbsp of oil and lemon juice in a bowl. Add lamb and marinate for 30 mins.

2 Meanwhile, to make romesco sauce, heat olive oil in a pan on medium. Cook garlic and chilli for 30 secs, until fragrant. Add capsicum, tomato and eschalot. Cover and cook for 15-20 mins, until vegetables soften. Cool slightly. Transfer to a food processor and add bread, nuts, vinegar and 2 tbsp water. Process until smooth. With motor running, add extra virgin olive oil in a thin, steady stream, until thick. Stand for 20 mins.
