Greek-style smoked olive and lemon lamb shoulder TACOS!

The olive lemon lamb shoulder roast has been adapted from a recipe by Matthew Evans, with the addition of smoked sicilian olives and 3 sprigs of rosemary. Depending on whether you're serving this from a leftover or whole roast, it will make 4-12 tacos. Serve everything separately at the table to make the lamb taco night a shared experience. Serve olives on the side.
