Trio of lamb


  • 2 slices toasted white bread , crust trimmed
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped mint
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp pesto
  • 1 rack of lamb , about 8 ribs
  • 1/3 cup sweet mango chutney
  • 1/4 tsp curry powder
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1 rack of lamb , about 8 ribs
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tbsp hot chili-garlic sauce
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp dark sesame oil
  • 1 rack of lamb


  • Preheat oven to 375F (190C). Tear toast into large pieces and place in a food processor. Add mint, cheese and oil. Pulse until coarse crumbs form. Smear fat-side of 1 lamb rack with pesto. Generously mound with breadcrumb mixture, gently pressing so it sticks. Place lamb, coating-side up, on a foil-lined baking sheet or rack set on a baking sheet.
  • Place chutney in a bowl. Remove any chunky pieces and finely chop, then return to bowl. Stir in curry and cumin. Smear over fat-side of 1 lamb rack. Place lamb, coating-side up, beside other rack on baking sheet.
  • In a small bowl, stir hot chili-garlic sauce with honey, Dijon and sesame oil until evenly mixed. Smear over fat-side of remaining lamb rack. Place lamb, coating-side up, beside other racks arranging at least 1 in. (2.5 cm) apart.
  • Roast in centre of oven until a thermometer inserted into centre of meat reads 140F (60C) for medium-rare, about 25 min. depending on size of rack.
  • Let stand 5 min. Slice into chops. Sprinkle chutney-curry chops with cilantro, if you wish.

Roasting three succulent racks of lamb offers your palette a little variety: Each rack has a unique flavour of its own. Cooking them all in one baking pan is a great way to taste-test without a lot of fuss.
