    Serves: 6 with leftovers

    Ingredients

    1.3 kg boneless leg of lamb
    25g pack fresh rosemary, finely chopped
    3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    1 tbsp red wine vinegar
    2 tbsp rapeseed oil
    2 tbsp Mammy Jamia’s Fig Preserve
    3 Jack Hawkins tomatoes, sliced
    1 cucumber, peeled deseeded and sliced
    1 red onion finely sliced
    10 Waitrose A la Grecque Olives
    200g pack Greek Barrel Aged Feta PDO From Waitrose
    Juice of 1 lemon
    1 tbsp Greek extra virgin olive oil
    1 tbsp Bart Dried Oregano

    Method

    1. Light the barbecue and allow it to reach a good cooking temperature. In a large bowl or ziplock bag marinate the lamb with the rosemary, garlic, red wine vinegar and rapeseed oil. Leave in the fridge for at least 2 hours, or even better overnight.

    2. Bring the lamb out of the fridge 20–30 minutes prior to cooking, heat the barbecue to hot and sear the lamb for 4 minutes each side. Reduce the heat and continue to cook for a further 25 minutes, turning occasionally. Warm the fig jam and brush over the lamb for the last 5 minutes of cooking.

    3. Remove from the barbecue and leave to rest while making the salad.

    4. Place the tomatoes on a large plate, top with the cucumber, red onion, olives and feta. Drizzle with the lemon juice and Greek olive oil and finish with a scatter of dried oregano. Season with a good pinch of cracked black pepper and serve with the carved lamb.
