New Zealand Spring Lamb’s rack of lamb is the perfect show stopper when it comes to Easter dinner. This impressive dish is surprisingly simple to make and is ready in under 30 minutes! The easy preparation of this meal gives you plenty of extra time to focus on your other delicious menu items, like basil mashed potatoes or cranberry glazed baby carrots.
Prep: 5 mins Cook: 1.5 hours Serves: 6 Cut: Shoulder
This roasted New Zealand Spring Lamb’s lamb shoulder glazed with a mixture of anchovy paste, garlic and black pepper; adds a fragrant and salty twist on a classic dish. We’ve roasted the lamb on top of tomatoes and potatoes here but if you prefer your vegetables to be on the crispier side, feel free to roast them in a separate pan. Even though you have your meat and potatoes covered, we suggest taking this dish one step tastier and prepare some simple roasted asparagus to accompany the other stars on the plate.
