2 Tbsp olive oil

1. Place salad dressing, 3 garlic cloves, 1 Tbsp. paprika and bay leaf in a blender container; cover. Blend on high speed 2 minutes Pour into a large resealable plastic bag. Add lamb; seal bag.

Melt butter in a medium size skillet over medium heat. Add oil, garlic, remaining 1 Tbsp. paprika and pimientos; cook 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in parsley. Place lamb on a serving plate; drizzle with the butter mixture.
