Ingredients

Fire Roasted Eggplant and Tomatoes:

Directions

Wash the leg of lamb and pat dry. Place in a hotel or lasagna pan.

In a bowl, combine the remaining ingredients except the salt. Stir until well blended. Pour over the lamb and turn a few times to make sure that the meat is well coated by the marinade. Refrigerate the marinated leg of lamb at least 2 hours, making sure you turn the meat at least once.

Preheat the grill to medium.

Season the meat with salt. Transfer to the hot grill and cook for 15 minutes on one side. Turn and continue to cook for another 15 minutes. Move the meat to a colder spot on the grill and cover. Continue to cook to desired doneness; check after meat has cooked for a total of 45 minutes and then again after 1 hour. Time will depend on the thickness of the meat.

Allow meat to cool for 15 minutes before carving to keep as much of the meat juice. Slice on a bias and serve with fire roasted eggplant and grilled tomatoes.

Fire Roasted Eggplant and Tomatoes:

Preheat the grill to medium.

Place the eggplant on the grill for about 30 minutes, turning often. Remove and cool completely.

Once cool, scrape out the pulp and discard the skins. Reserve.

Rub the halved tomatoes with olive oil and salt and pepper. Place onto the side of the grill and roast until soft.

In a large saute pan, over the hot part of the grill, heat the olive oil. Add the garlic, onion, cumin, tomato concasse, sesame seeds, and oregano. Cook until onion is soft. Remove from heat and adjust consistency with water. Add the parsley and vinegar. Season with salt and pepper.
