While a shoulder of lamb is not a culinary cut of great looks, when roasted on the bone or boned and rolled it is a favourite due to its sensational flavour and melt-in-the-mouth tenderness. Figs and olives are natural partners for lamb, all three are often used together in many Mediterranean cuisines.
