Frenched Lamb Rack with Toasted Pistachio Herb Crust

Serves 6 | Prep time: 25 mins | Cook time: 60 mins


2 Frenched lamb racks, fat trimmed (6-9 bones per rack)
2 tbsp herbs de Provence
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 cup (150g) pistachios, toasted, finely chopped
2 tbsp (40g) breadcrumbs, toasted
2 tbsp garlic oil
¼ cup (60g) Dijon mustard
2 tbsp walnut honey


  1. Preheat BBQ to medium-high.
  2. Pat lamb dry with kitchen paper and coat with herbs de Provence; season to taste with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a medium cast-iron skillet on the gas cooktop on the side burner; add lamb and brown on all sides for 5-7 minutes or until golden. Set aside to rest for 10 minutes.
  3. In a medium bowl mix pistachios, bread crumbs and garlic oil.
  4. Combine Dijon mustard and honey; brush all over the lamb; press pistachio mixture over lamb, ensuring the mustard layer is totally covered.
  5. Preheat BBQ to medium-low and set up for indirect cooking*.
  6. Place the lamb rack on the grill (away from the heat source) and close the lid.
  7. After 20 minutes, wrap each bone with foil to prevent over-blackening. Continue cooking, with lid on, for a further 15 minutes, or until the core temperature of the lamb reaches 50-52⁰C when using a temperature probe.
  8. Once the desired temperature is reached, remove from the heat, rest for 5-7 minutes before slicing in 2 bone increments. Serve immediately.
