Method

1. Mix together all the marinade ingredients. Put the lamb in a shallow, non-metallic dish, add the marinade, cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.

2. Add the saffron to the hot stock and pour over the couscous. Cover and set aside for 10 minutes, then stir to remove lumps.

3. Heat the oil in a frying pan, add the onion, chilli and garlic and cook for 3 minutes. Add the currants and nuts and cook for 5 minutes. Stir in the lemon and orange zest and the mint. Stir through the couscous.

4. Drain the lamb, discarding the marinade. Cook the lamb on a hot, lightly oiled barbecue grill plate or flat plate, turning once, until browned all over. Cook for 2-3 minutes more, turning frequently. Serve with the couscous.
