Oh yum.... Oh that really does look good! Getting peckish just looking at that picture.
Looks gorgeous. Will definitely try this.
Made this a couple of weeks ago and it was lovely. I'd advise be very generous with the marinade so you've got plenty to smother over the lamb when serving.
Sounds YUMMY!Will do this dish tonight.
Was looking for a nice marinade for leg of lamb and found this - have just prepared this and will leave to marinade overnight. The marinade smells absolutely delicious, can't wait to try it.
I have to say I was disapointed with this. It smelt delicious whilst cooking but the flavour of the marinade completely overtook the lamb and I had to throw most of it away. You also couldn't use the marinade to pour over the lamb while serving as suggested above because there was far too much fat in it from roasting the meat. Might be okay for anyone who likes a strong flavour of herbs, no votes from my family though sorry.
