    Heat oil in a large ovenproof frying pan and sear lamb racks, turning occasionally, until golden (about 8 minutes). Set aside. Add potatoes to pan, combine beans, garlic and shallots and add to potatoes. Season to taste, toss to combine, place lamb on top and roast in oven until lamb is medium-rare (10-15 minutes). Remove lamb and rest for 5 minutes if you have time. Scatter mint and oregano over bean mixture, toss, season to taste, squeeze lemon over and serve with lamb and lemon wedges.
