  • cup gluten-free breadcrumbs
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh mint leaves
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh Italian parsley
  • 1 clove garlic , minced
  • 2 (8 bones each) racks of lamb, trimmed and frenched
  • Kosher or fine sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Gluten-free nonstick cooking spray
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard


  • Combine the breadcrumbs, mint, parsley, and garlic in a small mixing bowl.
  • Preheat the oven to 450°F. Heat an ovenproof skillet large enough to hold both racks of lamb until hot over medium-high heat. If you do not have a skillet large enough for both racks, then place a roasting pan in the oven to heat as the oven preheats.
  • Season the lamb generously with salt and pepper on all sides. Spray pan generously with cooking spray. Place one rack of lamb in the skillet and cook for 2 minutes per side or until browned. Remove the rack from the pan and repeat with the other rack.
  • Brush the lamb with the mustard and press the breadcrumb mixture over the lamb.
  • Place both lamb racks back in the pan and roast in the oven for 18 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the lamb reaches 130°F. Let sit for 10 minutes before cutting and serving.
