    Any tender herb or green can be used in this riff on a traditional Georgian spring dish. Try all or a combination of the following: cilantro, tarragon, mint, basil, dill, chives, watercress, and sorrel. In Georgia they add fresh sour plums to the dish, but preserved lemons work just as well.

    Ingredients

    • 2 Tbsp. coriander seeds
    • 2 Tbsp. fennel seeds
    • 1 bunch cilantro
    • 1 bunch dill
    • 3 small bunches tarragon
    • 4 scallions or spring onions, thinly sliced
    • 2 small preserved lemons, skin and flesh chopped
    • 4 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
    • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for serving
    • 2 tsp. kosher salt, plus more
    • 1 (6–7-lb.) bone-in leg of lamb
    • 4 lb. baby Yukon Gold potatoes
    • 2 lemons, cut into wedges
