Method

Preheat the oven to Gas mark 5, 190°C, 375°F.

To prepare the rosemary butter; in a small bowl mix all the ingredients together.

Place the joint on a chopping board, make several slits over the surface and season.  Spread with the rosemary butter. Put the roasted vegetables in a medium non-stick roasting tin, add the oil and fresh thyme.  Position the lamb on top of the vegetables and roast for 35-40 minutes (for medium) on the top shelf of the oven.

Meanwhile, cook the potatoes in a large pan of boiling water for 10-15 minutes and toss in a knob of any remaining herb butter.

Remove the lamb from the oven, transfer to a warm plate, cover with foil and leave to rest for 5-10 minutes.  Carve and serve with the gravy, roasted vegetables and potatoes.
