Butterflied leg of lamb with salsa negra
Butterflied leg of lamb, means quick, easy cooking, that is as flavourful as cooking on the bone for much longer. Salsa Negra is a sweet, smoky paste made from fried chipotle chillies soaked in a muscavado brown sugar syrup and then reduced to a thick paste. Hot, smoky and sweet and is divine! Rubbing Salsa Negra on lamb before roasting, makes for a tasty crust that pares well with a tart mint sauce. The Salsa Negra recipe will make much more than you need for the lamb, but it stores very well in the fridge, just add it by the teaspoon to your favourite dishes, like beans, soups, sauces and marinades.
