Ingredients:
8 large garlic cloves
2 teaspoon salt
1 6 pound leg of lamb, boneless
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
4 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 cups water
2 teaspoon fresh parsley, chopped

Finely grind garlic and salt in food processor. Spread garlic-salt mixture evenly over lamb then sprinkle with pepper and chopped rosemary. Place lamb in a roasting pan, drizzle with oil and cover with plastic wrap, refrigerating for one day.

Preheat oven to 350°F. Remove plastic wrap and pour 1 cup water into pan. Roast lamb 1 hour. Turn lamb over; pour 1 more cup into pan. Continue to roast lamb until meat thermometer registers 140°F, about 1 hour longer. Transfer to cutting board; let rest 15 minutes.
