  • If your cut of lamb is too thick (I bought a butterflied leg of lamb) then using a meat tenderiser or rolling pin, hammer it out until it is thin enough to roll up. Roughly 1.5cm / 0.6 inch.
  • Place a layer of spinach (or any leafy greens) on top of the lamb.
  • Cut the haloumi into strips and place onto the spinach.
  • Sprinkle fresh rosemary, salt and pepper all over.
  • Roll up tightly and place toothpicks along the length of the meat to stop the lamb from opening whilst cooking.
  • Oil a roasting dish and roll the rolled lamb noisettes in the oil. Add more salt and pepper to your taste.
  • Cook at 180C/350F for 30 - 40 minutes depending on the size and thickness of the lamb. I like mine slightly undercooked in the centre.
  • Remove from the heat and cut into 5cm/2 inch noisettes.
