Remove the lamb from the fridge 1 hour before cooking and preheat the oven to 200ºC/400ºF.
Parboil the potatoes in a pan of boiling salt water for 10 minutes.
In the meantime, peel and crush the garlic into a bowl, adding the chopped rosemary, grated lemon zest, and oil, mixing them together.
Season the lamb with sea salt, black pepper and begin rubbing the marinade all over the meat. Place on the hot bars of the oven.
Drain the potatoes and let them steam dry. Oil a pan and add the potatoes, seasoning with salt and pepper.
Place the potatoes under the lamb to catch all juices.

When the lamb is cooked to your liking, remove from the oven and let rest for 15 minutes, while you prepare some vegetables.
