Lamb Tails

(Contributed by D. DelBoca <> from a cookbook loaned by a New Zealand shepherd.)

Ingredients Directions
  • lamb tails
  • flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp oil
  • ½ cup fine dry breadcrumbs
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp lemon pepper or ¼ tsp Chinese five spice powder

Select good size lambs' tails at tailing-time and remove skin by slitting down inside of tail and peeling off. Wash well and dry. Freeze until required.

Thaw the number of tails required. Dip tails in flour, then in coating of egg beaten with oil. Combine crumbs, salt, and lemon pepper or five spice powder. Coat tails evenly with crumb mixture, then cook in a little oil in a large frypan, turning to brown evenly. Drain on kitchen paper.

Serve with lemon wedges and parsley, as part of a mixed grill or as an entrée.
