Rosemary and garlic roasted lamb leg roast
- 2kg lamb leg boned and rolled
- 3 garlic cloves, crushed plus 4 whole garlics

- 1 tsp salt flakes
- 1 tbs dijon mustard
- ¼ cup (60ml) olive oil

In a mortar and pestle combine garlic, rosemary, salt and pound until you have a paste. Add the mustard, oil and lemon zest and mix to combine.
Line a large roasting dish with baking paper and place the onion slices on top. Roll the lamb with butcher's twine to tie it together and place it on the prepared roasting dish. Using a sharp knife make four incisions and fill with remaining garlic cloves.

Remove the lamb from the oven and cover with foil, allow to rest for 15 minutes. Slice and serve with lemon wedge.
