2 tbsp cumin seeds 30 mL

2 tsp fennel seeds 10 mL

2 tsp cardamom seeds 10 mL

1-1/2 tsp dried crushed red pepper 7 mL

1/2 tsp whole black peppercorns 2 mL

1/3 cup olive oil 75 mL

2 tbsp minced fresh ginger 30 mL

4 garlic cloves, minced 4

3 lbs boned and trimmed leg of Ontario lamb

1.5kg

In dry skillet over medium-high heat toast cumin, fennel, cardamom, red pepper and peppercorns until fragrant, approximately 2 minutes. Let cool and grind in spice grinder until fine. Stir in olive oil, ginger and garlic to make a paste.

Trim any remaining fat from lamb. Rub paste all over lamb and marinate for 4 hours or overnight.

Preheat grill to medium-high. Grill lamb on greased preheated grill, turning once, until meat registers 160ºF (70ºC), approximately 20 minutes. Let rest on a cutting board for 15 minutes before slicing thinly across the grain.

Makes 8 servings.
