Leg of lamb, marinated in an herb-seasoned marinade of orange juice, honey and tarmari, and grilled to perfection.
3/4 cup fresh orange juice
3 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons tamari
1/2 teaspoon crushed dried rosemary
1/2 teaspoon crushed dried oregano
2 cloves garlic, minced
1-inch gingerroot, peeled and cut 1/4-inch thick
1 1/2 pounds leg of lamb, visible fat removed
- Combine orange juice, honey, tamari, rosemary, oregano, garlic and ginger in a nonmetal dish or 1-gallon resealable plastic bag. Add lamb and turn to coat both sides. Cover or seal and refrigerate several hours or overnight, turning lamb at least once.
- Preheat grill. Spray grill rack with nonstick vegetable cooking spray. Place lamb over hot coals, reserving marinade. Sear lamb for 1 minute on each side. Cover grill and cook 20 to 25 minutes, or until a meat thermometer registers 150°F (65°C) for medium-rare or 160°F (70°C) for medium, turning lamb every 8 minutes and brushing with reserved marinade the last 6 minutes of cooking time. Allow lamb to sit for 5 minutes before carving it into thin slices.
Makes 6 servings.
Note: If tamari is unavailable, substitute soy sauce.
