  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh sage
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 (5- to 6-pound) bone-in leg of lamb

  2. Cut about 16 slits (about 1/2" deep) into lamb; insert garlic slices and a small amount of seasoned oil into each slit. Rub remaining oil over entire surface of lamb.
  3. Place lamb on a rack in a roasting pan. Insert a meat thermometer into thickest part of roast, making sure it does not touch bone or fat.
  4. Bake at 500° for 20 minutes; reduce temperature to 300°, and bake 1 hour and 10 minutes or until thermometer registers 150° (medium rare) or 160° (medium). Let stand 10 minutes. Slice lamb diagonally across the grain. Serve with Pineapple-Pecan Salsa.
