Ingredients:

  • Glug olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 (about 1.5kg) PnP deboned leg of lamb with Greek-style sprinkle (see alternatives below)

 

Salsa verde:

  • 1 punnet (20g) each coriander and parsley
  • Juice (60ml) of 1 lemon
  • 1 clove garlic, grated
  • 1 anchovy (optional)
  • ½ cup (125ml) olive oil
  • Salt and milled pepper
 

For platter:

  • 1 cup (250ml) pickled red onions (optional)
  • 1 tub (200g) PnP Tzatziki or 1 cup (250ml) plain double-cream yoghurt
  • Handful pomegranate rubies or roasted vine tomatoes (optional)
  • 2 packets (6s) mini pita breads, toasted
  • 1 packet (100g) rocket (or salad leaves of choice)

 

Method:

  1. Drizzle lamb with olive oil and rub with garlic.
  2. Braai over medium-hot coals until well charred, about 20-25 minutes for medium rare, turning regularly. (Alternatively brown lamb in a hot pan and roast covered in an oven preheated at 180°C for 20-25 minutes for medium-rare or 35-40 minutes for medium).
  3. For salsa verde, blitz together ingredients just before serving. (Alternatively, chop everything finely and combine using a pestle and mortar if you don’t have a stick blender.)
  4. Serve lamb sliced on a platter with pickled red onions, tzatziki or yogurt, pomegranate rubies or roasted tomatoes, toasted pitas and rocket.

 

Swaps to try:

Can’t find Greek seasoned lamb? Season your own lamb with salt, pepper, coriander and cumin instead. A little grated lemon peel works wonders too.

Didn’t buy lamb in time for Easter? This recipe works well with beef fillet or simply serve your beef steaks thinly sliced for a share platter.
