What you'll need:

  • About 600g lamb belly or unrolled lamb breast
  • 4 tbsp chopped rosemary
  • 3 tbsp yellow mustard seeds
  • 3 tbsp fennel seeds
  • 2 tbsp garlic salt
  • 2 tbsp celery salt
  • 5 tbsp olive oil

Time: 2 hours

Serves: 4



Preheat your oven to 150C, and roll out the lamb belly onto a flat surface. Once done, take your sharpest knife, and score the meat to within 5 mm of the base in a criss-cross pattern.


In a bowl, add the oil and all of the chopped herbs. Pour the mixture all over the meat, and rub it into all of the scoring so it really penetrates the flesh. Stick it in a roasting tin, and preheat your grill to high.


Grill your lamb under a blazing hot heat for about 5 minutes - you want the outside starting to char and crisp up. Once done, stick it in the oven, and roast for 90 minutes, or until cooked to your liking. Serve with some leafy greens and potatoes.
