Recipe for braised lamb shanks

Serves 4

Lamb shanks require long, slow cooking to become fork-tender while the braising liquid turns thick and rich. Gremolata topping brightens each mouthful. The garnish of chopped lemon, parsley, and garlic is usually served with veal shanks, but welcome with lamb.
