  • 1 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • ½ cup honey
  • 3 tablespoons curry powder
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • 2 teaspoons Coleman’s mustard powder
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 1 cup water

  2. Remove the lamb from the marinade, place in a shallow roasting pan and let stand at room temperature.
  3. Heat oven to 450 degrees.
  4. Roast for 15 to 25 minutes, depending on the size, or to 120 degrees for rare lamb. The hoisin sauce is brushed on during the last 5 minutes of roasting.
