  • 3 to 4 pound (1.4 kg to 1.8 kg) butterflied leg of lamb, trimmed of excess fat


  1. For the Marinade: Either the morning of the evening that you plan to cook the lamb (preferable) or the night before, whisk the red wine, Garlic-Infused Oil and raspberry vinegar together in a large bowl (large enough to hold the lamb). Whisk in the scallions and season to taste with salt and pepper. Add the lamb. Refrigerate for at least 6 hours or for the overnight and day duration, turning the lamb often to marinate evenly.

  2. Alternatively, I actually find it very handy to place the marinade in a large zip-top bag, add the lamb, remove the air and seal the bag. The marinade will be all around the lamb and you won’t have to tend to it.
  3. Up to a few hours before serving, make the Mint Salsa Verde. You can also make it the day before and bring it back to room temperature.
  4. For the Lamb: Prepare a hardwood charcoal fire and create a fairly hot fire. Remove the lamb from the marinade, allowing excess to drip away. Grill lamb for about 6 to 8 minutes on each side or until done to your liking. I like to remove it at 130°F/55°C and allow it to rise to 135°F/58°C upon resting for medium-rare.
  5. Let the lamb sit for 10 minutes for juices to redistribute, then slice and serve with Mint Salsa Verde on the side. Some sort of rice or potato dish and a green salad or vegetable make great sides. The lamb can also be served warm or at room temperature - but not cold.



  • We love this dish for entertaining as it is delicious warm or at room temperature. And leftovers make great sandwiches!
