There’s nothing that my family enjoys more than having lamb for our Easter Dinner.

Although our dinner was small, as my younger one was sick, I still manage to keep our tradition.  I had two racks of lambs in the fridge and I opted to roast them.  They were juicy and absolutely delicious.


Roasted Rack of Lamb


2 racks of lamb

2 lemons zest

2 tsp of pepper crushed

2 tsp of cayenne pepper

1 tbsp chopped mint

2 tsp honey garlic

2 tsp Italian seasoning

Salt and pepper

¼ cup of vegetable oil


Mix all the ingredients together.  Season the racks on all sides, cover them, and put them in the fridge for at least 6 hours or overnight.

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.

Put a nonstick frying pan over medium heat and add the oil.  Put one of the seasoned racks in the pan fat-side down, sear for 5 minutes or until golden brown.

Flip the rack and sear the other side.  Remove and place on a cooling rack on a baking sheet.  Do the same with the other rack.  Once done with the other rack, place on the same baking sheet.

Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and roast for 20 minutes.  Let it rest for at least 5 minutes before cutting into chops.

I served mine with some Haitian macaroni au gratin.

Regardless of your faith, I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend, and just like me, you are ready for a fresh start.
