Greek roast lamb

Yeah, it was good. A leg of lamb, stabbed and impaled with garlic like so, stuffed with rosemary sprigs, rubbed with olive oil and roasted as above for approx 2 hours at 190C.
Meanwhile, cube some unpeeled scrubbed potatoes, toss in a bowl with juice of 1 lemon, olive oil and a little salt and pepper.
When lamb has about 40 minutes to go, put potatoes in around the lamb. When lamb is done, remove it, wrap it in foil to rest, and crank the heat up to about 220C to finish crisping up the potatoes.
Also meanwhile, prepare a salad of chopped peeled Lebanese cucumber, plain yoghurt and fresh oregano leaves. Dismember lanb and serve as you will. Pass the ouzo!
