Try this Moroccan Marinade for Leg of Lamb recipe, or contribute your own.
Chop the 5 cloves garlic and 3 Tbs parsley together, make slits in the meat and stuff with this mixture. Combine the paste ingredients to make a paste. This is a terrific Moroccan marinade for a leg of lamb. I think I got it from Goldsteins "The Mediterranean Kitchen" but Im not certain. Rub the paste over the lamb. Let it stand 4 hours to overnight (I prefer overnight). Roast in a 350 degree oven to desired doneness, basting with the juices. Pour the fat from the pan, add 1 cup boiling water, scrape the pan, cook 2 to 3 minutes, strain into a sauce boat. When I first made this, the pungency of the mixture scared me a bit; however, the resulting lamb is mild and mellow. And it fills the house with a wonderful aroma!

Fromeverybody 3y agoI've used fresh coriander for the paste and barbecued it in a BGE. Best lamb I've ever tasted!
brookedolls 7y agoA quick recipe to throw together for the 4lb. leg of lamb I bought. The blending of the Moroccan Spices was what gave the lamb it's "punch" (flavour); when left for more than 1/2 day to blend, they had a chance to incorporate with one another. I cut small incisions in the upper fatty part of the leg thereby inserting slivers of "garlic" into the meat; then coated the entire leg well with the Moroccan Marinade. That done, I wrapped the leg well in Saran Wrap so as to not allow any air at the marinade paste...this way the coating remained soft and not dried out. I am printing this paste recipe for future use...in fact it would work for any type of lamb or pork! B. Knight Bradford, Ontario
