  • Prepare a charcoal grill with hot coals.

  • Brush the grill with oil to keep the lamb from sticking, and grill on both sides until the internal temperature is 120 to 125 degrees for rare.
  • This will take 40 minutes to 1 hour, depending on how hot the grill is.

  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until tender.
  • Heat the broiler and place the fruit about 5 inches below the heat and broil for 5 to 8 minutes, until the berries release some of their juices.
  • Remove from the broiler and sprinkle with orange juice.
  • Serve warm, at room temperature, or chilled over grilled lamb.
