Wednesday 10th June 2015


  • 1 Boneless leg of Welsh Lamb
  • 400ml (approx) can reduced fat coconut milk
  • 2 red chillies, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • Fresh coriander, roughly chopped
  • 1 lime, grated rind and juice


  1. Remove strings and flatten out lamb. Place boneless leg of lamb into a shallow dish and add the marinade ingredients - thoroughly combine together, cover and place in fridge for 1 hour.
  2. Remove from the marinade and thread metal skewers crisscrossing through the meat to keep flat.
  3. Cook on a lidded or covered barbecue - place flat onto the barbecue grid (not too close to the coals) turning frequently for about 40 - 50 minutes.
  4. Alternatively place directly onto the shelf in a preheated oven (gas mark 4-5, 180°C, 350°F, place a tray underneath to catch the drips) for about 40 - 50 minutes until browned on the outside and still a little pink in the centre.
  5. Take reserved marinade and boil thoroughly until thickened slightly - about 5 minutes, and serve drizzled over the lamb. Serve with Chinese stir-fry vegetables.
