This Crispy Moroccan Lamb Rolls is one of my favourite dishes to make at home, it's not too difficult but extremely tasty and will definitely impress if you have friends over. You can use left over meat from a Sunday lamb dinner or alternatively use a different meat of your choice.
Crispy Moroccan Lamb Rolls
Lamb is my choice as for this Crispy Moroccan Lamb Rolls as it delivers on flavour and is more authentic for a moroccan dish. The spice of the harissa in the sauce and the sweetness of the icing sugar and cinnamon create the perfect flavour combination that you're going to love!
