      Very good lamb shanks. I took Jan's lead and added a good pinch of chilli flakes. I really don't like the lamb fat/oil that comes out in cooking so once the shanks were cooked I covered them with foil and placed the sauce in a wide container and left to sit in the freezer allowing the fat to come to the surface and make it easier to skim off the top. I then reheated the sauce on the stove top allowing it to reduce and thicken. I served with your Coriander Lemon Couscous Coriander Lemon Couscous. Thanks for posting a tasty recipe that all the family enjoyed.

      These were wonderful shanks. I added a good pinch of chilli flakes to the dish and took the lid off and reduced the sauce in the last 15 minutes-otherwise no changes. I served them with couscous as suggested.

      Delicious! Really tender and a great blend of spices. I served with mashed potatoes to soak up the wonderful sauce rather than couscous but imagine it would be great served with that as well.
