Break nori sheet into small pieces. Place nori in a small electric spice grinder and process until very finely ground. Transfer into a bowl with salt flakes. Using your fingers, rub salt mixture together until well combined.

Carrot Puree: Melt butter in a deep saucepan over a medium to low heat. Cook carrot, stirring occasionally and taking care not to brown, for 10 minutes or until tender. Add stock and bring to the boil. Simmer for
15 - 20 minutes or until carrot is soft. Use a stick blender to blend until smooth. Season with salt.

Preheat oven to 180°C. Season lamb. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a heavy based roasting pan over a medium - high heat. Cook lamb, skin side down, for 4 – 5 minutes or until golden. Turn and cook

for 4 - 5 minutes or until browned all over.
Transfer pan to oven and roast for 20 – 25 minutes (for rare) or until cooked to your liking.

Meanwhile, place baby carrots and remaining oil in a baking dish and toss to combine. Roast for 15 – 20 minutes or until tender and light golden.

Transfer lamb to a chopping board and cover to keep warm. Set aside for 10 minutes to rest.
