Did you have it in an aluminum pan? Lemon and garlic in aluminum create a reaction that turn things blue.

Lemon+garlic+aluminum=Blue food?  Is there anything detrimental or is it just blue? 

This sounds like a kitchen experiment worth looking into.

Garlic sometimes turns blue due to reactions between enzymes and other garlic substances in the presence of acids. This is also why canned/jarred garlic turns blue/green. It should be safe to eat if the blue discoloration is from the garlic rather than just spoil.

Looks like an interesting thread. I take it you rolled a joint with lamb in it. Just kidding. Marijuana is legal here but I don't know about lamb.
