Honey sesame lamb

Honey sesame lamb



  • 800g lamb mini-roast
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard
  • Salt and pepper
  • Juice of two oranges
  • 1 tsp honey
  • sesame seeds


Heat oven to 200°C. Rub lamb with mustard, salt and pepper.

Place in oven for about 10 mins.

Mix orange juice with honey together.

Remove from oven and pour the orange juice mixture over the lamb and the base of the pan.

Sprinkle the lamb with sesame seeds and return to the oven, turning it down to 180°C.

Roast for approx. 15 mins for medium rare, or longer if you prefer.

Rest for at least 5 mins before cutting and serving.



  • If the honey is firm and hard to mix with the juice, zap it in the microwave for 10-20 seconds first.
  • I love lamb mini roasts as they are less expensive but just as delicious as other cuts of lamb.
  • This is wonderful the next day cold in sandwiches or wraps with yoghurt and cucumbers.
  • Sprinkle more sesame seeds over the meat before you serve for a little extra crunch.
