  1. Pre-heat oven to 200c. Line a large baking tray with baking paper. Remove lamb from the fridge and rest at to room temperature for 30mins. Meanwhile, prepare the glaze by adding all ingredients in a saucepan, bring to boil and then simmer for 15 minutes.
  2. Brush lamb rumps with half the oil, season with salt. Place remaining oil in a large frying pan over high heat. Add lamb rumps skin side down, cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until fat has rendered and lamb is crispy. Turn and cook other side.
