An average weight leg of lamb 2.7–3.2kg will serve 8–10 people. Allow 170g approx. per person. This weight of lamb will have about 620g of bone.


  • 1 leg of lamb


First make the herb marinade. Peel the garlic cloves and make them into a paste. Put them with the olive oil, salt and fresh herbs into a food processor and whizz them round for about 1 minute or until it becomes a soft green paste, otherwise just mix in a bowl.

If possible remove the aitch bone from the top of the leg of lamb so that it will be easier to carve later, then trim the end
