Make this delicious meal in under 40 minutes! Roasted with mint, cinnamon, paprika, garlic powder and cumin, each bite delivers flavours beyond your dinner dreams.
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dried mint
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1 1/2 lb rack of lamb
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 bunch fresh mint, finely sliced, to garnish
Lemon juice, for serving
Start by combining the salt, mint, cinnamon, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, and cumin in a bowl to make a dry rub.
Rub the mixture all over the rack of lamb to allow the spices to penetrate the meat (best to do this a few hours before cooking, even overnight). When ready to cook, preheat your oven to 400°F and bring the lamb up to room temperature.
Heat the olive oil in a heavy-bottomed skillet over medium-high heat. Sear on all sides for five minutes, turning as needed.
Transfer the lamb to the oven to roast for 14 to 15 minutes per pound (for a rack this size, about 19 to 21 minutes).
Remove and allow the lamb to rest before slicing into the individual chops. Enjoy!
