Ingredients

Saffron Aioli:
Fennel Seed Slaw:

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Combine the canola oil, rosemary, thyme, garlic and some salt and pepper and rub all over the leg of lamb. Wrap and refrigerate overnight. 

Preheat the oven to 225 degrees F. Roast the lamb until the internal temperature has reached 135 degrees F (for medium-rare), 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 hours. Let rest 20 minutes. Toast the baguette. Slice the lamb and place on the baguette along with some Harissa, Saffron Aioli and Fennel Seed Slaw. Cut into 8 portions and serve. 

Harrisa:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Roughly chop the peppers, tomatoes, carrots and celery. The garlic can be cut in half and added without peeling the cloves. Add the chopped vegetables, garlic, vegetable oil, parsley, thyme and salt to a large braising pan. Roast in the oven for 1 hour, stirring every 10 to 15 minutes. Add the tomato paste and 2 cups water. Continue cooking, stirring and adding 2 more cups water, until the vegetables are very tender, 2 more hours. Remove from the oven and pass through a food mill. The harissa may be divided into 1/2 cup dollops and frozen on a cookie sheet. 

Saffron Aioli:

Combine the garlic and salt in a food processor until they form a paste. Add the egg yolks, harissa, lemon juice and saffron tea and combine. Slowly add the canola oil, with the food processor running, until the oil has been emulsified.

Fennel Seed Slaw:

Combine the mayo, cabbage, onions, parsley, vinegar, fennel seeds and sugar. Season with salt.
