Butterflied Lamb Recipe

Asked by lovemyfood. Answered on 2nd March 2013

Full question

Hello I am desperately trying to find the recipe for Nigella's butterflied lamb, that she made on Nigellissima (series 1 episode 4) but cannot find it anywhere. Can you help? Thanks.

Our answer

The Butterflied Leg of Lamb With Bay Leaves & Balsamic Vinegar appeared on the TV show Nigellissima and is also in the book Nigellissima on p58. There is a clip of the recipe on the BBC website which you can find via the Nigellissima episode guide.

The leg of lamb is butterflied - the bone is removed and the meat is opened out - as this means that the meat cooks very quickly when compared with a traditional roasted leg of lamb. The meat is also bathed in oil and balsamic vinegar and studded with garlic, which means that after cooking there are some some deliciously piquant juices to serve with the lamb.
