Roast Leg of Lamb




Roast Lamb


Serves 6


2 garlic cloves

2 sprigs of rosemary

Salt & Pepper

¼ cup Olive oil

Zest of 1 lemon

1 leg of lamb


Preheat oven to 180C/ 350F

Place the garlic, rosemary, salt & pepper into a mortar and crush it with the pestle until you get a paste like consistency  then  add the olive oil & lemon zest, stir to combine set aside. ( you can also do this in a food processor).

With a sharp knife score the lamb, just don’t cut too deep, then rub the rosemary, garlic mixture all over the lamb, making sure you get into the cuts.

Put the lamb on a rack placed over a baking dish & bake for about 90 mins, the timing all depends on the size of the lamb, and how you like it cooked, lamb should be a little pink, but we like ours done just a little bit more. The lamb I used weighed close to 2kg/4lb.

Serve with your favourite vegetables, but one  of them has to be potatoes, baked, roasted, fried, whatever. Oh and gravy.

  1. That recipe looks great! One of these days I’m going to attempt lamb and serve it with a great SLO County Pinot Noir.
