"This is my favourite way to have lamb. I place this in the oven under the broiler to seal in the lambs great flavour. The recipe is for just 1 shank but it can very easily be multiplied. Make sure you wrap them up individually. I like serving it in the foil and let the guests enjoy the aroma as they open this up."
