Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C or 180°C fan-forced. Place lamb on a plate. Sprinkle both sides with za’atar seasoning.

Notes

Za’atar is a Middle Eastern spice mix. If unavailable, make your own by combining 1 tablespoon each of sumac and toasted sesame seeds with 1 teaspoon of dried oregano and 2 teaspoons of dried thyme.
