Butterflied leg of lamb
|Here is what a butterflied leg of lamb looks like. You will need to ask the butcher to bone it for you, or you can do it yourself.|
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees [F]. In a small
bowl, combine 1 tablespoon of the olive oil with the soy sauce and 2 teaspoons of the fresh rosemary or tarragon or 3/4 teaspoon of the dried.
Rub the lamb all over with the mixture.
2. With a small sharp knife, make 24 slits in the boned side of the lamb
and insert a garlic sliver in each. Rub the lamb with the remaining olive
oil and rosemary or tarragon and pour the lemon juice over all.
3. Place the lamb, boned side down, on a broiler rack with a broiler pan underneath to catch the drippings. Roast in the oven for about 20 minutes,
or until the internal temperature reaches 120 degrees [F]. Turn the oven temperature to broil and place the lamb in the broiler about 5 inches from
the heat. Broil 2 to 3 minutes, or until the meat starts to brown. Transfer
the lamb to a carving board and let it rest for about 10 minutes.
4. Meanwhile, prepare the sauce: Stir the garlic, lemon juice and thyme
into the pan juices, cover and keep warm.
5. To serve: Carve the lamb and transfer the slices to a serving platter. Stir
the parsley into the sauce and pour it over the lamb or pass separately.
