Easter Spring Lamb......

I have always been a huge fan of lamb. I enjoy the preparation as well as the roasting lamb aroma filling my home It's definitely the garlic mixed with the earthy and robust smell of the lamb that keeps me hovering in the kitchen. Enjoy!.

1 (5-7 lb.) boneless leg of lamb
2 lemons, zest removed and lemons squeezed
1 tbsp dried oregano
2 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons pepper
1 whole garlic bulb peeled
1/4 cup Italian parsley
1/4 cup olive oil

Put lemon zest, juice from one lemon and all other ingredients ( except the lamb) into food processor. Process until it becomes a paste. Spread evenly all over the lamb. Squeeze the other lemon over top. Bake in pre-heated oven set at 450 degrees for 20 minutes. Turn down oven to 325 degrees and finish baking for 1 1/2 hours or until a thermometer reaches 160 degrees for medium. Enjoy!


  1. Oh my! Looking good here! I'm off to get my Easter lamb this afternoon from the local meat market. It's really the only time of year that I make lamb, although all these new cookbooks have more lamb curries and lamb stews in them, so perhaps more lamb will end up on my dinner table! Yours looks terrific ... my recipe also has an herb slather (butter, garlic, lime juice, cardamom, ...) that fills the house with this incredible aroma! Happy Easter !!!

  2. What a lovely bit of lamb. I don't think there is anything that smells as good as a leg of lamb. I hope you have a lovely Easter Susan, it was so nice seeing a post. I have missed you and I hope all is well with you and your family.
