DIRECTIONS

  • In a small bowl, stir together the lemon zest, garlic, rosemary, thyme, and 1/4 cup olive oil. Spread the mixture evenly over the racks of lamb. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour or up to overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Season the racks of lamb with salt and pepper. In a large ovenproof saute pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 Tb olive oil. Add the lamb and cook until browned on both sides, about 7 minutes total.
  • Transfer the pan to the oven and cook until the lamb is well browned and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the racks, away from the bone, registers 130F for medium-rare, about 15 minutes, or until done to your liking.
  • Transfer the racks to a cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes. Carve into individual chops and serve the lemon wedges alongside.
