Insert some rosemary and a stud of garlic in each hole. 

Season generously with salt and ground black pepper.

Roast for approximately 25-30 minutes kilo for medium rare.

Remove the cooked lamb from the tray and allow to rest on the serving dish.

Tip the juices to one corner of the pan and spoon off the fat.

Bring to the boil and whisk all meat juices and bits from the sides of the tray.
