Method

 
Set oven temperature to 150°C.
Mix the olive oil, lemon juice, zest, herbs and cumin together. Rub all over the meat. Season well with freshly ground black pepper.
Cut the garlic into slivers. Use a small sharp knife to cut slits in the lamb shanks and put a sliver of garlic in each one. Cover and marinate overnight.
Cut four large squares of aluminium foil. Place a lamb shank in the middle of each piece of foil and spoon the tomatoes around the meat.
Divide the feta and olives between the four and sprinkle over the meat. Drizzle with wine.
Fold the aluminium foil to enclose the meat and make sure it is well sealed.
Place the parcels on a baking tray and bake in a preheated oven for two to three hours until the meat falls off the bone.
Season with salt and enjoy with rice, mashed potato or pasta.

Tip of the day

 
Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
