"I love how the sweet, herbaceous crust works with the subtly gamey meat. Lamb is obviously a popular Easter menu option and this mint-crusted rack of lamb is perfect for the occasion."

cayenne pepper, or to taste
1 1/2 tablespoons
finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Delicious. Lamb came out juicy, tender and super flavorful. Would definitely make again!
Delicious entry. But too much work.To make the marinade simpler just mix in mint, garlic, lemon juice, pepper and yoghurt . Plus Salt and(or) honey ( 7 extra seasonings) to taste. marinate overnight for better results and bake half an hour before serving!
This is very good. The mint and mustard go very well together, and the vinagret sause was a fantastic complement to lamb. I found I needed to cook the lamb about fifteen minutes longer to get it o a very good medium rare.
Excellent! I followed recipe and it was delicious! I will make this again for sure.
Best lamb ever!
You don't even need to do the vinaigrette after cooking its so good! The lamb was a perfect medium rare at 20 minutes. Amazing!
This is an excellent recipe - the mint crust is such a great contrast with the juiciness and tenderness of lamb, the mustard and honey keeps the lamb very moist. My husband isn't very fond of the vinaigrette sauce, so I skip on it - it's really not necessary as there's plenty of flavor in the crust. The instructions for frenching the lamb, blanching mint, and searing the rack prior to baking are also great tips for better cooking in general. However, we like our lamb well done and that takes at least 60 minutes at 400 degrees. I wish there were more recommendations from the author on how to cook this meat well-done.
isn't 20 min rather long? Two other recipes suggest 7min and 12 min.
