Kosher salt is a coarse-grained salt. Many prefer its chunky texture over regular table salt.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 4 ingredients in a small bowl.

Step 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.

Step 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.

Step 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.
