Roasted Rack of Lamb with Strawberry Mint Sauce

Posted on


happy cooking.





Ingredients for 2 large or 4 smaller portions:


1 whole (8 bone) rack of lamb seasoned very generously with salt, freshly ground black pepper, and cayenne


2 tablespoons Dijon mustard


1 tablespoons finely minced green onions


1/4 cup fine plain bread crumbs


2 tablespoons melted butter


1/4 teaspoon salt



For the *sauce:


2 cups fresh strawberries


zest of one lemon


juice from 2 lemons


1/4 cup water


2 tablespoons honey


1/4 cup freshly sliced mint leaves (add right before you serve!)


salt and cayenne pepper to taste



* Only do final seasoning when the sauce has cooled. When tasting the sauce, keep in mind it’s going to be used as a condiment, and not eaten plain, which means it needs to be very well-seasoned. This is why it’s better to taste on a cracker or piece of bread, instead of off the spoon. Other great additions to this sauce are things like balsamic vinegar, hot/sweet peppers, cracked black pepper, as well as other “sweet” herbs, like tarragon and basil.
