Summer lamb is an ideal BBQ meat, the coals provide a smokey contrast to the sweet meat. Both shoulder or leg of lamb deboned and butterflied work well here and are often overlooked for this seasons cooking. To balance the heat and sweetness of the lamb, grill radicchio and endive to accompany. In the absence of both bitter leaves which both barbeque beautifully, use baby gem or romaine lettuce heads, split in half.
Whisk together the ingredients for the orange harissa sauce and set aside.
Heat a BBQ to a high heat.
Using a small sharp knife poke holes all over the flesh of the lamb. Add 3 tbsp of the orange harissa paste to the olive oil, garlic, rosemary and a generous seasoning of salt and pepper- whisk until combined.
Massage the lamb with the marinade and allow to marinate for at least 30 minutes or covered in the fridge overnight.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the olive oil and balsamic vinegar with a generous seasoning of sea salt and ground black pepper. Add the raddicio, endives and spring onions and toss to coat.
When the BBQ has come up to a high heat add the vegetables and cook until charred on all sides. Remove to a plate and keep covered and warm.
Add the lamb to the centre of the grill and cook on both sides for 3-4 minutes before lowering the temperature, covering with a lid and cooking for approximately 30 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 130˚F for medium rare. Turn the meat halfway through the cooking time. Shield with tin foil if the lamb takes on too much colour.
When the lamb is cooked, transfer to a chopping board with deep grooves to catch the juices, cover with tin foil and allow to rest for about 5 minutes.
Slice the lamb thinly and serve with charred vegetables and a generous drizzle of the orange harissa paste.
