 Lamb brains6
 Salt To Taste
 Water1 Cup (16 tbs)
 Vinegar1 Teaspoon
 Lemon wedge1
 Olive oil1 1⁄4 Cup (20 tbs)
 Lemon juice1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
 Chopped spring onions1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
 Pepper To Taste
 Finely chopped parsley1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)


If brains are fresh, remove skin (this is easier if soaked for half an hour in cold water, a little salt and a tablespoon of vinegar).
If brains are frozen, leave un-skinned as the skin will be too difficult to remove .
Simmer brains gently in salted water with a teaspoon of vinegar and a lemon wedge until tender for approx 10-15 minutes.
Drain well and cool.
Cut brains into narrow strips and place in a small serving dish.
Make a mixture with the olive oil, lemon juice, spring onions and pepper.
Adjust salt.
Pour over the brains, garnish with chopped parsley, and refrigerate.
Serve chilled.
