Yield: 1 head
|1||Lamb's head, skinned and cleaned|
|⅓ cup||Olive oil|
|¼ cup||Red wine|
|1½ teaspoon||Crushed oregano|
|2||Cloves garlic, finely chopped|
|½ teaspoon||Freshly ground pepper|
Remove eyes and tongue of lamb's head. Then parboil head in water to cover for 10 minutes. Simmer tongue for 30 minutes in salted water; skin. Return to lamb's mouth.
Make a marinade by combining remaining ingredients; pour over head while warm and marinate for 1 hour, turning occasionally. Bake in a 325F oven for 1½ hours, basting from time to time. Place on a bed of parsley, surrounded by cherry tomatoes. Decorate with a garland of daisies. To serve, crack head down center and remove meat.
