Smoked Paprika Lamb With Eggplant Aioli

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Chickee

From "Alive and Cooking", a simple yet impressive lamb dish. It's actually pretty quick but the eggplant does take some time in the oven; you can do the aioli before time to cut down on the time needed.

Wonderful! The lamb was very nice but I thought the eggplant aioli was the real standout, the eggplant gave it great texture and also took away a little of the richness so a generous serve wasn't too rich and it also went well over the steamed vegies. I used lamb fillet and the only change I made was to use rice instead of couscous because I'd ran out.
