To get started on this tasty Moroccan Lamb recipe, remove lamb from refrigerator and allow to come to room temperature for 30 minutes. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a wide frypan and seal lamb on all sides. Remove and set aside.
Mix spices with garlic and remaining oil to make a paste. Rub all over lamb and place in large roasting pan. Add stock and dates, cover with foil and place in preheated 150C oven for 3 ½ hours. Remove foil and continue to cook for a further 30 minutes. Add extra liquid if necessary.
Remove lamb from oven and rest for 30 minutes, lightly covered.
Carve and place on serving platter. Drizzle with yogurt and garnish with pomegranates seeds, pistachios and fresh herbs. Serve with cous cous.
