Rosemary and Garlic Leg of Lamb with Caprese Salad

Preparation time:

10 mins

Cooking time:

1hr 30 mins approx

Serves:

6

Ingredients

  • 1 leg of lamb, approximately 2kg
  • ½ jar Beerenberg Worcestershire Chutney
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt
  • 4 cloves garlic, halved
  • 8 small sprigs rosemary
  • 6 mixed tomatoes, sliced
  • 250g Mozzarella, sliced
  • 4 sprigs basil, leaves picked
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar

Method:

Preheat the oven to 200°C and place a wire rack in a large baking dish. Place the lamb on the wire rack and coat with Beerenberg Worcestershire Chutney, half of the olive oil and a big pinch of salt. With a small knife, cut 8 holes in the lamb and place a piece of garlic and rosemary in each hole. Place the lamb in the oven for 1 hour 15 minutes for pink, or 1 hour 30 minutes for well done. Allow the lamb to rest for 15 minutes before carving.

As the lamb is cooking, lay alternating slices of tomato and Mozzarella onto a serving plate. Place the basil leaves over the salad and dress with the remaining olive oil, balsamic vinegar and a pinch of salt.
