3. Place lamb in a roasting pan. Poke several slits into each side of lamb with tip of a paring knife; set aside.

4. In a medium bowl, combine oil, lemon juice, garlic, herbs, red pepper flakes and salt and pepper to taste; whisk until smooth. Rub marinade all over lamb, massaging it into the meat and slits. Cover and refrigerate a minimum of 2 hours or overnight. Wash hands after handling raw lamb.
