Lamb ribs with garlic, lemon and thyme


You'll give these ribs a real flavour hit by adding half the garlic and lemon paste prior to cooking and the rest just before serving.

You'll need

1.5 kg lamb rib racks (about 2) 5 garlic cloves 2 tbsp thyme leaves Finely grated rind of 1 lemon, plus 1 tbsp juice 30 ml extra-virgin olive oil

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 150C. Place rib racks on an oven tray and score meat with a sharp knife.
  • 02
  • Pound garlic and a pinch of salt in a mortar and pestle to a fine paste. Stir in thyme, lemon rind, juice and oil. Rub half the garlic mixture over ribs, season to taste and roast until meat falls from the bone (45 minutes-1 hour).
  • 03
  • Cut each rack into individual ribs, toss through remaining garlic mixture and serve hot.
