Fresh, fruity, sweet and spicey... In this recipe mix mediteran and asian flair. What I love on that dish, it is very refreshing. Some friends of me hate lamb meat. As i invited them to little private dinner party, they were so excited. I told them... i am preparing Lamb dish. I saw how affraid they was. After they tryed my recipe they changed their mind. Now they always say... when you are going to cook it again :)
