The Best English Roast Lamb

Take a two kilo joint of lamb preferably Halal,it cooks better,Finely chop three to four stalks of rosemary add the zest of a lemon,and two very finely chopped cloves of garlic,mix with a good swig of olive oil in a small bowl and season smear over the lamb,helps to make incisions in lamb and massage into the meat

Peel and half potatoes and par boil in salted water,shake the pan after draining water to bash the edges,put in a roasting tray along with rosemary and a tablespoon dried Parsley and 4 or 5 unpeeled garlic cloves,give a very good glug of olive oil,season well with rock salt and black pepper.

Place the meat over the potatoes in a roasting tray,give another glug of oil add two halves of lemon and place in a roasting tray at 220" for 10 minutes,turn down the heat to 200" and continue to cook for 65 minutes,then wrap the lamb in tin foil and rest for at least 30 minutes.

proper food enjoy and devour we did,I made this for my best friends Ute's Dinner party,all was consumed....and a good time had by us all !
