c) In a large bowl, combine the grated garlic, half the harissa paste, half the toasted almond flakes, the breadcrumbs, salt and water for the breadcrumbs (see pantry for both amounts), then add the lamb mince.
d) Season with pepper and mix together with your hands. Roll into 5 even-sized balls. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw mince.
a) Pop the meatballs onto a large baking tray and drizzle over the honey. TIP: If your honey has hardened, pop it in a bowl of hot water for 1 min.

c) Pop the remaining garlic (unpeeled) into a small piece of foil with a drizzle of oil and scrunch to enclose it.
d) Roast the parcel on the meatball baking tray until soft, 10-12 mins. Once the garlic has cooled, cut the end with scissors, squeeze it out of the skin and mash with a fork.
