Spatchcooked Lamb with Anchovy and Herb Paste


1. Put the anchovy and herb paste ingredients into a blender and blend to a paste.

3. Insert 2 long metal or wooden skewers, criss-crossing through the meat.
4. Place directly on the shelf in a preheated oven (place a tray underneath to catch the drips) for about 50-60 minutes, turning frequently.
