This Roast Leg of Lamb is the ultimate in hassle free entertaining. A traditional dish for Easter, this recipe makes cooking for family and friends just that more enjoyable and also allows you to spend more time with the people in your life.
This is inspired by a Jamie Oliver recipe I came across on drizzleanddip.com about a year ago. I loved the simplicity and total low maintenance of the recipe for such an expensive cut of meat and I made it with great success for Easter last year. The recipe might be simple but it definitely delivers on the aromatics and fall off the bone meat which you do not even have to carve.
This year I wanted to tweak it slightly and add a bit of depth to the flavour by using smoked salt and ground cumin and coriander. All those flavours work so well with the garlic, lemon and rosemary without overpowering anything at all. And the smell that permeates through the kitchen is just fantastic!
