recipe for pistachio crusted rack of lamb.

Prep couldn’t be any more simple than this! Begin by preheating the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and set aside. Thoroughly season both sides of the rack of lamb with the salt and pepper.

Next, heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large skillet over high heat. When the oil is very hot, place the lamb in the skillet, fatty side down first. Brown each side of the lamb for 3-4 minutes. Transfer the lamb rack to the foil-lined baking sheet.

Now stir together the pistachios, Parmesan cheese, rosemary, and 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a small bowl. Spread the dijon mustard on the fat-side of the lamb. Use your hands to pat the pistachio mixture on top of mustard and press down firmly so that it sticks to the meat.

Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the crust is golden and the lamb is pink in the center, or to the doneness of your liking. Transfer to a plate and let the Pistachio Crusted Rack of Lamb rest for 10 minutes before carefully slicing in between the bones into individual chops. Enjoy!
