    French Terrine's Note:

    This recipe is adapted from Guy Fieri's recipe on Food Network. When cooking any type of animal protein, my own personal preference is cook with bone in. I like to think that the oozing marrow from the bone adds richness and flavor. Guy's recipe included green beans, but we used our favorite veggie, cauliflower. Allow at least 4 hours for marinating. If you are refrigerating your lamb while marinating, allow to come to room to room temperature before grilling. Guy F. suggests 20 minutes. Often times, Indian recipes are served with rice. However, to be a little more carb smart, serving pureed cauliflower is a great alternative to starches like rice or potatoes.
