A bestseller, our Merguez recipe has been refined over the years and is much loved by our restaurant community. Distinctly complex in flavour; lamb* shoulder is coarsely ground then seasoned with ground spices, fresh chillies, garlic and coriander.
Merguez sausage meat is perfect for patties or shaping around a skewer kofta-style and charring on the barbecue - serve with flatbreads, a chopped salad and cooling yoghurt. Delicious on a homemade pizza, the spicy sausage meat dotted on providing bursts of intense flavour.
Chef Valentine Warner inspires:
"One of my favourite sausages, the meat is very handy when loose.
Fired balls of the sausage meat added to a tomato sauce containing a little extra harissa is wonderful in the centre of some simply boiled chickpeas dressed on a little oil and sea salt.
Used as you would lamb mince in samosas and mixed with cubes of boiled potato plus a little ‘wakeup call’ of chopped preserved lemon. Deep fry in their filo triangles, drain and then try not to eat the lot without offering them around.
Mixed with a handful of fresh breadcrumbs, another of chopped fresh coriander and a little dill and lemon juice stirred in and this makes a fabulous stuffing to tie-up between two fillets of mackerel then cook over charcoal.
Cook the sausage meat in a tomato sauce with onion plus a little extra cumin and cinnamon. Stir in a small heap of fresh mint and eat with a couple of poached or fried eggs and a blob of yoghurt - mop it all up with grilled flatbreads."
*Swaledale lambs roam free across vast distances, migrating between valleys and hill tops, foraging as they go. The limestone pastures of the Yorkshire Dales are home to a unique range of herbs, grass and wildflowers, the cocktail of which bestows the lamb with its distinctive flavour. Robust and slightly sweet in character, the Swaledale lamb also has a subtle herbal undertone; the provenance is unmistakably Yorkshire.
