Rack of lamb is the perfect dinner party dish – it looks impressive but is relatively simple to cook and serve. You can even cook it on a barbeque.
- 2 lean racks of PGI Welsh lamb
- 2 large sprigs of fresh rosemary
- 1 lemon, rind removed and juice
- 3 garlic cloves cut in half
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- Black pepper
Preheat the oven to 180°C / 160°C fan / Gas 4-5. Take the two lean racks of lamb and calculate the cooking time: medium – 25 minutes per 450g/0.5kg plus 25 minutes; well done – 30 minutes per 450g/0.5kg plus 30 minutes.
Mix together the rosemary, lemon rind and juice, garlic, olive oil and seasoning, and rub into the racks.
Cook on a preheated barbecue with a lid or place onto a rack in a roasting tray and oven roast for the calculated cooking time.
Serve the lamb with new potatoes and a green salad.
