The recipe is based on this video although I am grateful I don't have boxes of recently slaughtered lambs at my supermarket. This will definitely be a regular visitor to our table as it brings back all the memories of a Monday school lunch sandwich with last night's roast lamb.
Weird trivia I almost won her dress on eBay years ago, I don't think it's my colour though.
- 2 lamb flaps or bellies
- 2 brown onions
- 1/2 bunch parsley
- 2-3 sprigs rosemary
- 1 thumb ginger
- 1/2 tsp. all spice
- 1 glove garlic
- 2 tbsp. salt (see note)
- Kitchen string
- Weights or pot of water to press sausage
- Remove the ribs from the flaps
- Remove as much fat as you want remembering it wont render away when boiling and will be part of the finished sausage.
- Lay the 2 flaps on top of each other skin side out, you can square them up but I didn't bother.
- Chop the onion, parsley, rosemary and put in a bowl
- Grate the ginger and garlic into the bowl
- Add the salt and all spice and combine
- Spread the mixture over the top of the flaps
- Roll the flaps tightly to form the sausage
- Tie with kitchen string at about 1-1.5 cm intervals
- Boil in a large pot of water for 1.5-2 hours
- Remove the sausage from the water and place in a baking tray
- Press the sausage overnight or up to 24 hours in the fridge
- You can use anything to weight it down, weights, or a pot of water etc.
- Slice thinly remembering to remove the string
- Serve on toast with mustard, it is delicious
- Note: I had made some salsa verde salt for a dear friend's birthday, and used some leftover for this recipe which I think added to the flavour. The salt is processed in a spice grinder with fresh parsley, basil, coriander, mint, and then dried in the oven.
- The next time I make this I will try and remove as much fat as possible although the mustard does cut through the fat. I will also try making the filling in the food processer to achieve a smoother texture. I'll report back if it's not as good.
Finally 50 shades of Grey came in handy!
Malmö will see Eythor Ingi perform Ég Á Líf will I have another Icelandic performer to add to my list of favourites?
