Roasted Lamb, served German style

This roasted lamb recipe, aka Lammbraten,  is especially delicious for Easter dinner. A German tradition, it's great all year long.  Although not as common or traditional as beef and pork, lamb is becoming more widespread with the increase of immigrants to Germany. One of the best lambs to eat in Germany are the Salt Meadow Lambs. These are lambs that have been raised in Schleswig-Holstein on the dykes. Their food is the salt grasses. The meat, saltier? No, just tastier!

Lamb for Easter is traditional. This tender meat has a distinctive flavor and is often enhanced with garlic, and in this case, with mustard.
