Butterflied Leg of Lamb with Asian Marinade

This recipe is for butterflied leg of lamb.  A butterflied leg means the bone has been taken out leaving the meat from the leg all in one piece.  As leg of lamb is quite tender, it does not need to be cooked for a long time and can be grilled quickly on the barbecue.  It is possible to butterfly a leg of lamb yourself, but it is much easier to ask a butcher to do it for you!  This recipe is from Steve Raichlen’s book called “BBQ USA” and features an Asian inspired marinade using lots of ginger.
