Heat the oil in a roasting tin in the lower half of an oven preheated to 240°C. Season the leg of lamb with salt, brown for approx. 10 mins. Turn the oven down to approx. 180°C.


Mix the potatoes with the sweet potatoes, rosemary, oil, honey, lemon juice and salt, place in the roasting tin around the leg of lamb.

Cook for a further 40 mins. at 180 °C (core temperature approx. 55°C).

Cover and leave the meat to rest for approx. 10 mins. before carving, keep the potatoes warm.
