When I was a new bride, I decided to prepare a special Hanukkah for my husband, David, and me to share. The star was this lamb entree, which had been one of my favorites when I was growing up. Dried apricots add a touch of sweetness to the tender lamb, which is gently spiced.—Rachel Delano, Tappahannock, Virginia

"Very tasty. Took far longer than 15 minutes to prep (with cutting up and de-fatting the lamb shoulder), but it was very tender and nicely flavoured."
