Lamb Loin Marinade

What do you get when you mix garlic paste, lemon zest, rosemary, olive oil and lemon juice? A tasty marinade.

Last night I made a quick dinner for my sister. I had been craving Greek so I picked up some lamb loins, stole some rosemary from the garden and bought some ingredients to build a Greek salad. Pretty simple stuff and tasty, too. Lamb loins are a little bit thicker than a skirt steak so you only need to grill 4 minutes a side for medium rare.

Lamb Loin Marinade
Zest from 2 lemons
Juice from 2 lemons
2 lamb loins, boneless and well seasoned
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup of fresh rosemary, chopped
5 garlic cloves, made into paste or use garlic paste from store

Put garlic in mortar and use pestle to make paste. If you don't have one just put in bowl and mash up until paste forms. Add rest of ingredients and pour into bag. Add lamb and mix well. Marinate for up to 6 hours.
