      This was wonderful! I love a recipe that is elegant enough for company, yet is absolutely simple to make. The flavors in the rub really stood out, and complemented the flavor of the lamb nicely. I had a few ribs left over, which I enjoyed cold the next day for lunch, also a wonderful meal. This is definitely a keeper!

      We just love anything Moroccan! And this is just amazing! I had two racks but I made the full seasoning mix , but didn't use it all, saved some for another piece of meat. I do think (for my taste) I would reduce the amount of cayenne only because lamb is such a delicate flavoured meat and the heat takes away from the flavour. That is just opinion. I will definately be making this again. Thank you for posting.

      Fabulous! This one is a keeper for sure!!! I tried it both ways, in the oven and on the grill. I like the oven way best, but try for yourself and see which one you like! Thank you so much for sharing this fabulous recipe! LA :-)
