Spicy Barbequed Butterfly Leg Lamb

Spicy Barbequed Butterfly Leg Lamb

Cooking time


  1. Remove as much fat from the deboned lamb as possible.
  2. In a small bowl mix Cobram Estate Reserve Picual Extra Virgin Olive Oil, garlic, chilli paste, coriander seeds, black peppercorns, ground cumin, paprika, rosemary and mint.
  3. Rub meat all over with this marinade then cover with plastic film or foil and marinate in the fridge overnight or for at least six hours.
  4. Cook lamb on a medium barbecue for about 10 minutes on each side.
  5. Rest the meat for 10 minutes before slicing it. 
  6. Season with a little salt and serve with your favourite salad.
  7. For additional flavour season with a little Cobram Estate Reserve Picual Extra Virgin Olive Oil before serving.


This is one of our favourite ways of preparing a family barbecue and it’s better if you can marinate the meat overnight.  We love to serve it with a green salad or some tabouli.
