25ml Olive Oil
1-2 Garlic Cloves
15g Pine Nuts

This one's super simple... add all of the ingredients into a small food processor / blender and blitz to your preferred texture.
Place the lamb shanks in a zip seal food bag and add the pesto. Massage into the lamb and leave in the fridge overnight.
Preheat the oven to 170°C, individually wrap each shank in foil and bake on a tray for 90 minutes.
Remove the foil and continue to cook for a further 30-60 minutes - be careful when opening the foil!
