I picked up a package of Lamb Shoulder Fillet, something unfamiliar to me. They are 3 little fillets, about 2-1/2x4 they are nicely marbeled on the outside and look lean in the center. Anyone have experience using these? I'm not sure what to do with them and a web search isn't helping so far.

Ohhhh! I can't wait for the answers. This cut sounds yummy. By any chance was it purchased in NYC?

I bought it at Fresh & Easy Market in CA. They are owned by the British company Tesco and often have some British products. I might search on UK websites for ideas.

This recipe sounds delicious, though may not be what you were thinking: http://www.foodnetwork...
I'd also think about grinding it: http://www.food52.com/recipes...

Looks like you can do about anything with it. Here's what they look like:

I'm trying kebabs, have them in a yogurt marinade now. I couldn't decide between marinating in Harissa or yogurt so I put Harissa in the yogurt. The suggestion to make into burgers was probably a good one too, because they do have some fat on them.

A chimichurri sauce with the kabobs would be nice. Many recipes out there, but a basic mix of olive oil, chopped parsley, lemon juice and red pepper flakes. Whisked in a mini-prep would be a nice side sauce with the Harrisa and yogurt flavorings.

And maybe some mint in there too.

If indeed they look like those pictured I would be thinking about a tagine as opposed to kebab. I think they could possibly use some braising time and you could still deploy your harissa and couscous.
