Roasted rack of spring herb lamb and printanière of spring vegetables
This delicious meal will impress your guests
Roasted rack of spring herb lamb
Cooked traditionally and with a minimum of fuss, this is a truly wonderful main dish, perfect for a Sunday lunch with friends or family or a chic, more formal dinner party. And it looks great, too. The main difference here is that the herbs aren’t added prior to cooking but just afterwards, and while the meat is still hot. This way, the herbs retain all of their flavour and none of their freshness is lost.
2 racks of French-trimmed lamb
A little olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Fresh herbs such as flat-leaf parsley
and rosemary, chopped
1. Preheat the oven to gas mark 7/220°C/ 425ºF. Place the racks of lamb in a roasting tray, leaning them against each other and interlocking the ribs so they stay upright. Brush with a little oil and cook for 15 minutes. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper, then lower the temperature to gas mark 6/200°C/ 400ºF, for another 15-20 minutes for juicy, pink meat. If you prefer your lamb a little less rare, add another 5-10 minutes.
2. While the lamb is cooking, chop the herbs very finely (you can do this in a food processor). Place them on a plate, ready to cover the lamb later.
3. Once cooked, remove the racks of lamb from the oven. (Keep the juices in the roasting tray, because you will be using them to coat the vegetables. Just skim off the fat and set the tray to one side until needed.) Carefully roll the lamb on the fatty side in the chopped herb mixture – use a tea towel or a napkin to hold the ribs if they’re too hot. Place on a warm plate, cover with foil and leave to rest for 10 minutes or so while you cook the vegetables (see right).
4. To serve, slice each cutlet between the ribs just before placing on a plate with the printanière of vegetables.
Printanière of spring vegetables
A printanière is quite simply a mixture of any vegetables, usually tossed in a little hot olive oil, cooking juices or dressing just before serving. Use any combination from the list below.
