I haven't had a good roasted leg of lamb yet in my life. When I see them on the shelf at the store I just pick up a rack instead. Being so lean, it can easily dry out. Shanks and a few other cuts are very gamey, which I do not like. I stick with the racks for the lightest flavor.

If you want to experiment. You can get a package of those "lollipop" sliced rack of lamb. Salt, pepper and into a hot pan with oil. Thats all. Cook them over medium heat for about 3-4 minutes per side (depending on how thick they are). They're good grilled too.

somewhere... I have a recipe for lamb shanks that is to die for. DELISH! Moist and filled with flavor. I'll try to find it...

and leg of lamb I can do pretty well too..stuff it with about a million cloves of garlic, rub with oil, lemon juice and spices.. bake and enjoy! It won't be gamey if it's killed young.
