Recipe by Meli-lynne
This was on the CBC website one day and it sounds so tasty. I love lamb. According to the recipe the lamb racks must be first be "Frenched" by the butcher, removing excess sinew and meat from the rib bones. Time to make does not include marinating time.

- 1⁄4 cup fresh rosemary, chopped
- 1⁄2 cup olive oil
- salt and pepper, fresh ground, to taste
- 8 garlic cloves, chopped
- 4 sprigs fresh rosemary, for garnish
