Lamb roast with piquillos

Since I live in the south west of France, I use a lot of piquillos in my kitchen. I always have a jar of them in my closet and it’s super useful to customize a dish. It goes with a lot of things: In pasta, rice, meat like here. It’s the little extra thing that changes everything. I can find it in any supermarket, either canned or in glass jars. I refer you to my article here on piquillos if you want to know more.

As I’m quite a bit on the go at the moment, I don’t have much time to prepare meals and do the shopping. So, to make a nice little roast lamb more gourmet, I took my secret weapon out of my closet 🙂
