Lamb, grilled vegetables and couscous

Here's a couscous recipe that works realy well and is very appetising. The leg of baby lamb is marinated for 3 hours with olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, a pinch of ground cinnamon and cumin then grilled under a grill.
Couscous with a dressing of 3T olive oil, juice of half a lemon, lots of fresh coriander & chives. And some chopped olives.
Grill the aubergine, courgette and onion in a grillpan, transfer to an ovendish and mix with tabil :
1 T crushed coriander seeds
1 t crushed caraway seeds (
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
1/8 t cayenne pepper
1/8 t curry powder
½ t ground cumin
3 T olive oil
Let marinade for at least half an hour.
Just before serving, put it in a 200C oven for about 25 minutes, and at that stage you can also add some cherry tomatoes

It worked together very well. I especially liked the couscous!
And I think the serving dishes look really good too.
