Grilled lamb with spices

I am really getting excited for the warm weather! he yard is beginning to look nice, although there still is a lot of work to be done. The grill is back in business and pretty soon we should be able to enjoy the deck! Of course that also means a lot of soccer for the kids...but there still is time to enjoy dinner!

This recipe is extremely easy and very tasty.
Butterflying a led of lamb can be daunting. Most butchers will gladly do it for you!

Grilled Marinated Leg of Lamb

1/4 cup olive oil
Juice of 2 lemons
4 garlic cloves, pureed with a garlic press
2 Tbsp Curcuma
Salt to taste
1 1/2 Tbsp Herbes de Provence

 1 leg of Lamb, deboned and butterflied

Place all the ingredients of the marinade into a bowl and mix well. Rub it on all sides of the lamb as refrigerate for at least a few hours, or overnight.

Preheat the grill until really hot and place the meat flat on it. Let sear for a couple of minutes and reduce the heat to medium. Cover and cook for 10 minutes.
Turn the meat over and cook for another 10 to 15 minutes.
When done, place on a board and cover with aluminum foil; let rest for 10 minutes.
Cut into 1/3-inch slices and serve with couscous, or a quinoa salad.
