I’m not sure if ‘Wonderful Leg of Lamb’ is actually the name of this dish but it was the best I could do with the help of Google translate.
The recipe is in Icelandic.
It’s from an Icelandic magazine.
I don’t read … Continue reading.....
I first made this lamb, and posted the recipe, about 6 years ago. It’s so good, and so easy I’ve made it often since and thought it was worthy of a re-post.
