Peanut Crusted Roasted Rack of Lamb

1 8-Bone Frenched Lamb Rack

¼ cup Dry Mustard

3 TBS Sherry

¼ cup Mango Chutney

¼ cup Panko Breadcrumbs

¼ cup Roasted Peanuts

2 TBS Chopped Fresh Herbs (Thyme, Rosemary, Parsley, Basil)

3 TBS Olive Oil

TT Salt

TT Pepper

Mix dry mustard and sherry to form a smooth paste. Chop peanuts in a food processor and add panko breadcrumbs. Pulse for approximately 30 seconds, add chopped herbs and mix thoroughly. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add oil to peanut-breadcrumb mixture and mix well.

Season lamb rack with salt and pepper. Sear lamb rack on all sides in a heavy bottom pan. Remove and cover rib bones with aluminum foil. Spread a layer of mustard across the top of the meat, followed by a layer of mango chutney. Place lamb rack in peanut-breadcrumb mixture to get a heavy layer of breading. Remove and place on roasting pan. Place in preheated 350-degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until desired temperature. Medium rare is preferred. Allow to rest for 3 to 5 minutes and cut chops between bones. It goes well with a nice Minted Balsamic Glace.
