How to prepare a rack of lamb with a crust

Making a herb crust for a rack of lamb is a great way to add texture and flavour to the meat.

Crusts are usually made from a mixture of breadcrumbs, herbs and spices. Choose the ingredients according to what will work with the other components of the dish as well as the flavour of the lamb itself. Herbs such as thyme, parsley, tarragon, chervil and oregano work particularly well.

Ensure that the meat is room temperature before commencing.

Method

1
Preheat the oven to 180˚C/gas mark 4.
2
Blitz the breadcrumbs, parsley, chervil and Parmesan in a food processor until a crumb consistency
3
Place a frying pan over a high heat and add the oil
4
When hot, season the lamb with salt and fry until golden brown.
5
Remove the lamb from the pan and brush all over with the mustard then coat in the herb crumbs
6
Transfer to a rack and place in the oven for 10 minutes
7
Leave to rest for at least 5 minutes before serving
