One tray bakes are the perfect throw-together dishes that make weeknight cooking a breeze, though this one is fancy enough that it would also be a hit at a dinner party.

The harissa paste makes this dish and the lemon slices, olives and mint really add to it to give a delicious Moroccan flavour profile.
