    Our son loves Leg of Lamb.......this is how we do it for him.

    Rinse roast with cool water, pat dry. Rub surface all over with a fresh lemon, cut in half.

    Let stand just a few minutes.

    Brush lamb with olive oil, and then sprinkle with coarse salt, black pepper, garlic powder and rosemary.

    Roast in an open pan @ 350 degrees until desired doneness. Remove from oven, tent loosley with foil and let it stand 15-20 minutes.

    This is for a four pound leg, so maybe use a bit more ingredients and cook a bit longer. It's easy and Fantastic!
