      So delicious the lamb roast was melt in the mouth tender and DH went back for a second helping. Thank you so much lazyme for posting this 5 star recipe. Made for the Dining Daredevils team for ZWT5 Family Picks.

      This is close to my recipe, and we loved it. We live in Australia, where lamb is reasonably priced, and can enjoy a roast like this quite often. Used olive oil to coat the roasting pan and 'borrowed' some rosemary from a neighbour's garden. Thoroughly enjoyed for Zaar World Tour.
