Ilove lamb. And this bite is made with the loin which is low in fat butpacked with flavor due toa rub ofgarlic, rosemary, salt and pepper and a given a quick sear to create a nice crust and to lock in the juices. After a short roast in the oven, the lamb can be served at room temperature skewered with roasted potatoes and crunchy grilled scallions andcomplementedby a zippy herbaceous sauce. This bite is destinedto become one of your favorites! I hope you make it and enjoy it. Fire It Up! Chef Eric
