How to cook 1lb boneless leg of lamb

Butcher was kind enough to give me a 1lb portion. It's too small to roll and roast. How else can I cook it? Should I brine the lamb?

I make a paste with: mint, cilantro, parsley, olive oil, salt, pepper, onion, and garlic. Slather paste on the lamb. Marinate overnight and grill. Slice up and serve with pita, salad.

Also, a tablespoon cumin to the paste.

Argh! No grill! Can I oven roast it w/o it drying out? Maybe 20 min?

Yes, I think you can roast it, low & slow (maybe 275F). Since it's only 1lb, I can't see it taking much longer than an hour. Internal temp of 130-135 F for medium doneness.

You can also use a grill pan. We grill to medium rare 125 degrees marinated in herbs, garlic and plenty of olive oil.
