It's a shame to overlook lamb in the summer, because it’s actually so good on the grill. Served boneless, with a mustard barbecue sauce and a baby kale salad, the result is both refined and rustic.



  1. In a glass baking dish, combine the oil, lemon juice, oregano, salt, red pepper flakes and garlic. Add pepper to taste. Coat the lamb in the marinade, cover with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 4 hours.
  2. Preheat the grill, setting the burners to high. Oil the grate.
  3. Grill the meat on both sides. Reduce the heat to medium and continue cooking for 15 minutes, or until a thermometer inserted into the centre of the meat reads 122°F (50°C) for rare, turning the meat halfway through cooking. Remove from the heat and let rest for 5 minutes.
  4. Slice the meat. Serve with the mustard-based sauce (see recipe) and lemony baby kale salad (see recipe).
