This is one of those winning recipes to have on standby. It takes just a few minutes to prepare, then it goes in the oven and does it’s thing, and hey presto! In less than an hour dinner is ready. Plus it tastes great. The preserved lemon really gives it a flavour boost. Just a quick note: the quantities here are a very rough guide, use however much looks/feels right to you.
