Rack of Lamb

I hope these photos are somewhat appealing because this is a delicious lamb recipe. For so little effort it comes out feeling and tasting like a special, fancy dinner.

pre-heat oven to 500
1 rack of lamb, trimmed of extra fat
3 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 teaspoon salt, plus salt for seasoning meat before searing
1 small sprig fresh rosemary, finely chopped
black pepper
olive oil for pan and for drizzling

make a paste with the blunt side of your knife with the garlic, teaspoon of salt, and rosemary
heat a skillet over med-high (on the high side - you are searing meat) with a little olive oil
season rack with salt and pepper
sear meat on both sides until you have a crispy brown crust
remove rack to a baking sheet and use a fork (so as not to burn your self) to press paste evenly over top side of meat
season with pepper and drizzle a little olive oil on top
put in 500 degree oven for 7-10 min depending on desired degree of doneness
let meat rest 10 min before slicing
