DIRECTIONS

  • Combine paprika, mustard, white, black and cayenne peppers, salt, fennel, thyme and oregano. Place on large plate or baking sheet.
  • Melt butter with garlic and pour onto a separate plate or pan.
  • Dip lamb into garlic butter then into seasonings, pressing firmly onto each side.
  • Place lamb on greased grill on medium high setting; Cook for 15-20 minutes on each side, depending on thickness, or until desired doneness - 65° C (140° F) for rare, 70° C (150° F) for medium. Meat will "blacken". Let rest and slice on the diagonal.
  • Alternatively, in a large heavy skillet or roasting pan, brown lamb on both sides-expect a lot of smoke-and roast in a 350°oven for 35-40 minutes.
