Ingredients

1 pack Pure South Te Mana Lamb French Rack (1kg)
A knob unsalted butter
1 cup walnut pieces, chopped
2 tbsp thyme, chopped
2 tbsp rosemary, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp coarse salt
1 tsp freshly cracked black pepper
1 tbsp avocado oil with rosemary
½ cup dijon mustard

Good quality lamb racks coated in an irresistible blend of walnut, herbs and dijon mustard crust are perfect to serve for Christmas.

Method
  1. Take the lamb out of the fridge and let it come to room temperature. Preheat the
    oven to 180C.
  2. Sprinkle salt and black pepper all over the lamb and sear in a hot frying pan on a
    high heat with oil and butter for 2-3 minutes, turning with tongs until golden all
    over.
  3. Put the racks on a roasting tray and let cool.
  4. In a cordless blender, pulse walnuts, thyme, rosemary, garlic until well combined.
    Add oil, season with coarse salt and cracked pepper. Mix well.
  5. Generously brush mustard all over lamb. Press walnut mixture onto mustard to
    form a crust.
  6. Roast for 25 minutes, until the crust is crisp. Remove the lamb from the oven and
    leave to rest for 10 minutes before serving with the roast baby carrots (optional).
