Ingredients

AUSTRALIAN LAMB
1 Australian leg of lamb, boneless
MARINADE
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons garlic, chopped
2 teaspoons Kosher salt, divided, to taste
½ cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon zest, divided
¼ cup lemon juice, divided
1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, chopped
ROASTED RED PEPPER SAUCE
18 ounce roasted red pepper (about 5 peppers/3 cups)
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
2 tablespoons lemon zest, divided
2 tablespoons lemon juice, divided
½ teaspoons fresh rosemary, chopped


To make marinade, combine the cayenne, garlic, Kosher salt, ½ cup of the olive oil, 1 tablespoon of the lemon zest, ¼ cup of the lemon juice and 1 teaspoon of the rosemary. Pour over the lamb. Refrigerate lamb for 24 hours, turning every few hours to coat in marinade.



Place leg on a preheated grill and cover. After 15 minutes, remove the cover and turn. Cover again. Continue to turn meat every 15 minutes until it reaches an internal temperature of 140°F, about 35-45 minutes.



To make the roasted red pepper sauce, combine half of the roasted red peppers, the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, 2 tablespoons lemon zest, 2 tablespoons lemon juice and ½ teaspoon of rosemary in a blender. Blend until smooth. Fold in the remaining roasted red pepper. Season to taste with salt. Refrigerate until needed.



To serve, slice lamb and place 6 ounces on a plate. Top with ¼ cup of chunky roasted red pepper sauce.
