Barbecued Middle Eastern Lamb

READY IN: 1hr 45mins
Top Review by JustJanS

I marinated a boned and butterflied leg of lamb for only 12 hours in the mix, and it was sensational. Juicy, full of flavour and something we will definately cook again. I served it with my Cumin Potatoes and Fatoosh by Fluffy #61245 for a great dinner.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all the marinade ingredients together in a bowl.
  2. Pierce the lamb all over with a small sharp knife.
  3. Place the lamb on a large plate or container.
  4. Pour the marinade over the lamb and massage it into the meat, coating it well.
  5. Cover the lamb and leave it to marinate for 12-48 hours.
  6. Heat a Barbecue to Moderate-High and place the lamb on the rack, coating it well with the marinade.
  7. If possible place the lid over the lamb and leave it to cook slowly for 1 1/2 hours, coating it with the marinade and turning it each 30 minutes (if you like the meat well done simply cook for a further 30 minutes).
  8. Remove the lamb from the direct heat and allow it to rest in a warm place for 10-15 minutes before slicing.
