Roast Leg of Lamb
6 pound leg of lamb (6 to 7)
1 whole bulb of garlic separate into
juice of two lemons
salt pepper, paprika
1 sprigs fresh rosemary
Preheat oven to 425ºF. Remove most of visible fat and discard. Cut
cloves of garlic into slivers. Make slits in meat with sharp knife and
insert slivers of garlic (one in each slit). Brush surface of meat with
olive oil and squeeze lemon juice over all. Season with salt, pepper and
paprika. Place leg of lamb in roast pan and spread rosemary sprigs over
top. Roast 30 minutes. Turn oven down to 325ºF and continue roasting, 30
minutes per pound total cooking time.
IMPORTANT: Do NOT baste. When you slice meat, you will see the pockets
of roasted garlic in the meat, which enhances the flavor.
