  2. Place the lamb fat side up. Use a knife to pierce the lamb all over, then put a little sprig of rosemary into each hole.
  3. In a large bowl mix together the potatoes, onions, garlic and thyme leaves together, then season with sea salt and pepper.
  4. Layer the potatoes and onions in a roasting tray with the final layer being potatoes and reserve the stock, then place the lamb on top, skin-side up.
