Summer at last and no season will be complete without the frying of the sacred lamb.

A standard medium sized lamb roasted for 3-4 hours, depending on heat. We didn’t put the whole thing in an overnight marinade this time and instead we constantly painted it with a fresh coat of oil, garlic and herbs to keep it juicy. Keep some water handy to put out flash fires.
