Ingredients for Roast Herbed Lamb

1 cup finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

3 shallots minced

Grated zest of 1 lemon

1 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary

3/4 tsp salt

3/4 tsp coarsely chopped ground black pepper

1 (2 1/4-lb.) untied boneless leg of lamb, trimmed

1. Preheat the oven to 400. Put a rack in a roasting pan.

2. Mix the parsley, shallots, lemon zest, rosemary, 1/2 tsp. of the salt, and 1/2 tsp. of the pepper. Rub the mixture all over the lamb jelly-roll-style and tie with kitchen string at 1-inch intervals. Sprinkle evenly with the remaining salt and pepper.

3. Put the lamb on the rack and roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center registers 135 for medium rare, 1 hour 20 minutes. Transfer the lamb to a cutting board; let stand 10 minutes before carving. Remove the string and cut into 12 slices.
