How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 6 ingredients in a small bowl.

Step 2

Pat lamb dry, and place, fat side up, on a rack in a roasting pan. Make several 1-inch-deep slits in lamb with a paring knife; rub olive oil mixture over lamb, pressing mixture into slits. Cover loosely with foil, and let stand at room temperature 30 minutes.

Step 3

Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400°. Uncover lamb, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Step 4

Bake at 400° for 2 hours and 30 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 145° (medium rare). Let stand 30 minutes before slicing.

I made this dish for Easter and everyone loved it. I served it with Potato, Onion and Tomato Gratin; and Asparagus-and-Green Onion Risotto. I will definitely serve this dish again!
