  • 2 racks lamb
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh thyme
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons coarse sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


  • Make a crown out of the racks of lamb by combining both racks sideways using a kitchen twine. Pinch a hole on one end of of both racks before the last rib.
  • Bring both racks together side by side. The part with the hole should be right by each other. Insert a kitchen twine on one hole (first rack) then secure by tieing around the last rib near it. Insert the other end of the twine in the hole of the other rack (second rack) and then pull until the two racks are connected to each other. Secure the twine. Repeat these steps on the other sides of the racks to create a crown.
  • Rub salt and pepper all over the meat. Let is stay for 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, combine rosemary, thyme, and olive oil in a bowl. Stir and rub all over the crown of lamb. Let is stand for at least 15 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 370F. While the oven is warming-up, wrap the exposed ribs with aluminum foil.
  • Arrange the crown of lamb in a baking tray or circular cake pan. Roast for 35 to 40 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and let it cool down for 15 minutes. Slice into individual servings and serve. Share and enjoy!
