Recipe Ingredients for Rosemary Ginger Leg of Lamb

4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons minced rosemary
4 tablespoons finely minced fresh ginger
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
4 pounds leg of lamb, butterflied

Recipe Directions for Rosemary Ginger Leg of Lamb

  1. Preheat grill to high heat.

  2. In a spice blender combine the olive oil and the rosemary. Mix well. Add the ginger and garlic. Mix until well blended into a paste. Add salt and pepper.

  3. Slather the leg of lamb with the paste. Get all the nooks and crannies. Use enough that all the meat is liberally coated.

  4. Put the leg of lamb fat-side up on a roasting rack and place the rack in a shallow pan, just deep enough to catch the drippings.

  5. Put the lamb on the grill.

  6. After 10 minutes turn the grill down to low heat. Grill the lamb until desired doneness. (Somewhere in the neighborhood of 1.5 hours to 1 hours depending on how you like it and how big the leg is.)
