2. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and allow lamb to marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours and then 1 hour at room temperature.

3. Preheat a Cuisinart® Griddler fitted with the grill plates and in the closed position, to High. When preheated, brush plates with oil. Grill lamb until it reaches desired doneness, about 6 minutes per side for medium-rare.
