DIRECTIONS

  • Using a small, sharp knife, make 24 incisions all over the lamb.
  • Stuff each incision with a piece of anchovy and garlic and a pinch of the rosemary.
  • In a roasting pan, combine the 1/4 cup of olive oil with the wine and lavender.
  • Add the lamb and coat well.
  • Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • Light a grill. Bring the lamb to room temperature and season with salt and pepper.
  • Grill the lamb over a moderately low fire for about 40 minutes, or until lightly charred and an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part registers 125 degrees for medium rare.
  • Transfer the lamb to a carving board and cover with foil and let rest for 10 minutes before thinly slicing it.
  • Serve with lemon wedges and additional olive oil.
