    amanda l b's Note:

    This was published last weekend in the Sunday Age 'Sunday Life' magazine, recipe by Karen Martini. It was everything the article promised - really tasty, succulent 'Greek-style' lamb. I bought an 800 gram lamb mini-roast, and removed all visible fat. I halved both the 'paste' ingredients and the 'wet' ingredients and only put in a small amount of oil. I also marinated the lamb for about 40 mins before cooking, and cooked for about an hour and a quarter. There was an accompanying recipe for a pearly barley, parsley and toasted almond salad which I also made (and it was also very tasty!) - which I'll post later.

      Delicious the only change I would make is to lessen the oil but then I may not have mixed it well enough. I used a 2.2K k of lamb which I deboned and butterflied to get about 1.5K which was well done (to our liking) in 2 hours (had to put it in the second oven to keep warm so I could cook the roast vegetables was expecting the lamb to take 2.5 to 3 hours to cook to well done. I did use fresh oregano (a small handful and mixed with rosemary and other spices) and then forgot to serve with the lemon wedges but a wonderful roast and one I wouldn't hesitate to recommend, thank you amanda 1 b, made for Pick A Chef September/October 2009.
