To serve

1

While the BBQ is heating up marinate the lamb backstrap with 2 tbsp of the Moroccan seasoning and a splash of oil.

2

Place your lamb on the BBQ and cook to your liking aiming for a nice caramelised colour on each side. For medium rare the lamb should feel soft and have a springiness to it when you touch it with your finger.

3

Rest the lamb to relax the meat to allow for a more tender eating experience.
