After all the different grocery stores that I went to in order to find all of the ingredients and all the work I put into deboning a full leg of lamb on my own, I was thinking that this better be delicious. Well it ended up tasting better than I could have ever imaginined, especially since I didnt know what to think based on the odd combo of ingredients. I must add that I couldnt find figs and ended up using a fig preserve/jam instead; didnt have creme de cassis liqueur and just used brandy instead, and I didnt have coriander, I used dill instead. It didnt even matter because the end result was spectacular. I only wish more of my family liked lamb so I could make this the centerpiece of a holiday dinner. Though next time I am going to have the butcher debone and trim the fat for me. I served this with garlic roasted fresh cut string beans and greek style potatoes (from this website). Oh, and in order to keep everything moist I baked this covered, 30 minutes at 400F, 30 minutes at 325F. everything still browned perfectly. Simply magnificant.
