an excellent marinade for bbq lamb. a very fresh flavour and there's no reason to hold back on the mint, the more the better! it was like an outside roast dinner : )

Not very memorable and needs more mint, maybe a tsp of mint sauce to give it a bit more of a kick.

I cooked this inside. It was ok but didn't taste as minty all the way through the steak as i would have liked. Very easy to do tho and i would consider doing it on the BBQ.
