  • Summary

    In this hearty dish, a piquant yogurt sauce not only offsets the robustness of the lamb, but also helps bind the citrusy herbed breadcrumbs. What pops out of the oven: tender, juicy meat with an irresistibly crisp coating.

    Ingredients

    • 2/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
    • 3 tablespoons minced garlic (from 6 cloves)
    • Coarse salt
    • 4 teaspoons lemon zest and 2 tablespoons fresh juice (from 2 lemons), plus wedges for serving
    • 1 1/2 cups fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
    • 1 1/2 cups panko breadcrumbs
    • 1 1/2 cups plain Greek yogurt
    • 2 tablespoons grainy mustard
    • 1 boneless leg of lamb (4 1/2 pounds), trimmed of silver skin and butterflied
