This is a great way to fix a rack of lamb. Most of the work can be done the day before because it needs to marinate overnight. We love the butter sauce on this. This was from the Bon Appetite RSVP section from the Poppie's Bistro Café, Aspen CO.
- 1⁄3 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
- 1⁄4 cup honey
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce

- 5 tablespoons oyster sauce
- 1⁄4 cup fresh lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon sugar

I have prepared this several times, including for a gourmet dinner club and a 5 course dinner for 18. This is flavorful, allows for early prep work, and gets rave reviews. I was a little nervous about lamb because I thought it was hard to get it tender and not overcook. Not an issue with this recipe at all!
absolutely fantastic. I have made this many times....and by far my favorite lamb dish....
