and apology to ROmona Hilliger for spelling her name wrong on Saturday.
Unfortunately, spelling is where my creativity really shines.

Lamb Leg Rolled in Wattle-seed and Macadamia Nut

2.2kg Easy-carve (boned out) lamb leg
200g crushed macadamia nuts
200g wattleseed*
500g mango puree
50g butter

Length-wise, roll one half into the macadamia nuts and the other half into the Wattleseed.

Place the leg into a hot oven and cover with aluminum foil ensuring that the plasticized metal does not touch the food. Use a piece of baking paper, if necessary. Roast for 1 and a half hours at 200 degrees C and then remove the covering and roast until the nuts are just browned. Use a meat thermometer for accurate measurement of the doneness. Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 15 minutes before carving, remembering to remove the string.

Place the mango puree,butter, salt and pepper into a saucepan. Warm for a few minutes on a medium heat.

Slice the lamb leg and fan on a plate over Lemon myrtle infused rice, Rainforest herb fettuccini or Alpine pepper polenta. Drizzle with the mango sauce and accompany with your favorite mint sauce on the side,  steamed greens or baked vegetables.

If you don't have any wattleseed in the pantry, you can buy some by following the link below:
