  1. Place lamb on a greased foil-lined baking sheet. Drape a piece of heavy-duty foil over bones to prevent overbrowning. In a small bowl, combine the honey, preserves, oil and lime juice. Set aside 1/2 cup. Spoon half of the remaining glaze over lamb.
  2. Broil 4-6 in. from the heat for 10-12 minutes or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°), basting once with remaining glaze.
  3. Remove lamb from the oven and loosely cover with foil. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting. Brush with reserved glaze. Yield: 4 servings.

"This recipe was awful. I am not a novice cook, but have never made lamb before. My bf brought it for dinner and we decided this sounded good. I printed the recipe and followed it TO THE LETTER. The cook time is all wrong. I had it in under the broiler as it said for 12 minutes. The glaze was black and the lamb was raw. I would never use this again, even though the glaze that was edible was good."
