  1. Preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C). Put the lamb, paprika, cayenne, and lemon zest in a mixing bowl, combine well, then set aside. Heat 4 tbsp of the oil in a large, heavy-based nonstick pan, add the onions, and cook over a medium heat for 3 minutes. Add the lamb and cook, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes or until no longer pink.
  2. Add the potatoes and cook for 2 minutes, then add the parsley, garlic, thyme, rosemary, preserved lemons, and the rest of the olive oil. Combine and toss together, season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, and cover with a lid. Place the pan in the oven and cook, stirring frequently, for 11/2 hours. Serve warm.
