The greeks are wonderful at cooking with lemons most of us just think of them as a seasoning but they turn them into wonderful soups puddings and countless other dishes. This is not a traditional greek dish as far as I know but it certainly owes its creation to greek inspiration. The lamb is coated with a tangy crust aga slotsroasted then served with a white wine gravy.
