Recipe: Lamb tagine with fennel

Lamb tagine recipe with fennel, here is a tagine recipe with a certain character, I like to cook and taste the fennels, here they will deliciously flavor the shoulder of lamb. We love to taste tagines at home, I love the opening of the tagine and the scent that develops when the lid is opened. The lamb goes wonderfully with this vegetable, it will cook for an hour and will remain very tender and tasty. My lamb and fennel tagine was tasted in a few minutes, I finished the cold lamb in the evening with a little homemade mayonnaise. A rather quick preparation in the tagine, the most important moment is the cooking, do not forget that the vegetables are full of water, they will generously mix with the sauce.
