No-Gluten Recipe #1 – Pistachio-Crusted Racks of Lamb
This elegant and deceptively simple recipe will woo even the staunchest gluten-advocate!
Number of Ingredients Needed – 7
Method – Preheat your oven to 450 degrees F. Take two racks of lamb (about eight pieces of bone) and season it well with salt and pepper. Heat an oven dish large enough to accommodate both pieces and sear the meat using one tablespoon of olive oil. After the lamb cools, smear a well-ground paste of pistachios – 1/2 cup (salted and roasted beforehand), mint leaves – three cups, garlic cloves (crushed) – three, lemon zest and juice of one lemon plus two tablespoons of olive oil – on the meat side of the lamb racks. Press the lamb a little on the bone side and bake for about 25 minutes. Cover in some foil and leave it to cook by itself for about 10 minutes.
Serving suggestion – Just serve it hot with some hot chutney or tangy relish.
