Method

 
Place lamb in a dish. Mix other ingredients (not those for couscous) and toss with meat. Marinate for a few hours - the longer it marinates, the stronger the flavour becomes. Drain any liquid off meat. Grill meat until crisp outside and pink within.

COUSCOUS:
Mix couscous with chopped fruit and nuts. Place in a baking dish, season, cover with foil and bake at 220 ºC for 20 minutes. Stir in butter with a fork. Serve couscous with spiced lamb.
