Lamb Rack With Honey Glaze

Roasted lamb rack was always a mystery to me until I watched a chef friend make it for us at a dinner party. It’s such an impressive dish and surprisingly easy to make. This recipe takes 15 minutes to prepare plus 15-20 minutes to cook.

If my local farmer who raises lamb is not available, I go to my local butcher for the lamb rack and I ask him to trim the fat and french the rack for me. I use garlic grown in the garden and if the rosemary is not growing in our herb garden, I get fresh rosemary rather than dry and the honey comes from our farm. All local. All good.

Lamb rack pairs well with any of your favorite sides, from kale salad to sweet potatoes or  roasted vegetables.
