Ingredients

  • 50g fresh white breadcrumbs
  • 75g halloumi, grated finely
  • 3 tbsp finely chopped mint
  • zest of 1 small lemon
  • 1 medium egg
  • 500g rack of lamb (from the butchery counter), trimmed
  • 1 tbsp plain flour
To serve
  • 4 tbsp natural yogurt
  • 1 tsp harissa paste

Step by step

Get ahead
Prepare to the end of step 2 up to 1 day ahead. Bring to room temperature for 30 mins before roasting
  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas 6. Mix the breadcrumbs, grated halloumi, mint and lemon zest in a shallow dish. Season with a pinch of salt and some ground black pepper.
  2. Lightly beat the egg in another dish. Dust the lamb all over with the plain flour, shaking off any excess, then dip in the egg to coat well. Next press the lamb rack in the breadcrumb mixture, patting it on. Repeat this again (egg and crumbs) for a double layer coating.
  3. Sit the lamb rack in a small roasting tin and cook for 25 minutes in the middle of the preheated oven until the coating is golden and crunchy and the lamb is cooked but still fairly pink in the middle. If you prefer your lamb more well done, then cook for a further 5-10 minutes. Leave to rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing into chops.
  4. Mix together the yogurt and harissa, season; serve alongside the lamb and tabbouleh.
