Moroccan Lamb Tagine Recipe

This lamb and apricot tagine recipe is just delicious; really tender lamb with a nice spiciness and the sweetness of apricots and golden sultanas.

Totally made up by me as I went along, I wrote everything down as I added it and I will be making this again as it really was delish!

Moroccan Lamb Tagine 

If you have a Tagine then now is the time to use it. My Emile Henry Tagine is excellent as it can go on the stovetop and also in the oven. 

Ever since I bought it I've made quite a few tagine recipes although you don't have to have a tagine, you can instead use a lidded casserole.


You'll need a jar of Passata (skinned tomatoes) which have been passed through a sieve removing the seeds along with any lumps. You'll find it in any good supermarket near the tinned tomatoes.

Tinned Tomatoes

You need to use really good quality tinned tomatoes, I used a nice tin of Italian cherry tomatoes. If you use cheap tinned tomatoes your sauce with not be half as nice but instead will be watery.

I always use the Cirio brand (or Napolina) and again they are available in any good supermarkets, although it's really only Tesco, Sainsbury's and Waitrose I've seen Cirio.
