3
Stir in the remaining ingredients for the stuffing. Leave to cool.
4
Open out the shoulder and place skin side down on a clean work surface.

Spoon the stuffing onto the meat, roll into a neat parcel and tie with string. Place in a roasting tin in a preheated oven 180 C, 350 F, gas mark 4 for 1 hour.
6
Pour the red wine and stock into the tin and roast for a further 30 minutes. Transfer the joint to a heated plate, cover loosely with foil and allow the meat to rest for 15 minutes before carving.
7
Skim any fat from the stock in the tin. Place over a high heat for a few minutes. Stir to incorporate any sediment. Carve the lamb and serve with the gravy.
