    Roast Lamb with Lemon and Mint and Roasted Vegetables

    Serves: 6

    Ingredients

    • Leg of Dorset lamb (bone in) approximately 1.5kg-2kg
    • 1 pack fresh mint, finely chopped
    • Juice and zest of 2 lemons
    • 2 tbsp olive oil
    • Salt
    • Freshly ground black pepper
    • 1 red pepper, deseeded and sliced
    • 1 green pepper, deseeded and sliced
    • 2 small or 1 medium fennel bulb, sliced

    1. Dry the joint with kitchen paper and prick all over with a sharp knife. Place in a roasting dish.

    3. Place in a preheated oven at 200°C, gas mark 6 for 20 minutes, then reduce the heat to 180°C, gas mark 4 and cook for 20 minutes per 450g.
    4. Place the vegetables in a separate tin, season, and drizzle the oil over the top. Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C, gas mark 4 for 1 hour 30 minutes or until tender.
    5. Allow the roast to stand for 10-15 minutes before carving. Serve with the vegetables and Jersey Royal new potatoes.
