    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    Try this on the grill, it's awesome! (heat the grill to high, sear the lamb for about 5 minutes on all sides, reduce the grill heat to medium and cook for about 30 minutes for med-rare). Plan ahead the lamb needs to marinade for 24 hours. Since the lamb is butterflied you will need a large baking pan to cook in the oven, to save time as your butcher to butterfly it for you.

      excellent marinade . Lovely recipe! Turn both sides of the gas grill on high to start with then when meat is seared switch one side off and cook the meat on the side with the flame off. This produces indirect heat source. Maybe ten to 12 min then let meat rest.

      This was absolutely great! I followed the recipe exactly as written, and cooked it on our Big Green Egg BBQ. I asked the butcher to butterfly the leg of lamb for me so this made the dish really easy. I used a fresh leg of Quebec lamb. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!
