Moroccan Rack of Lamb

Servings 4


  • 2-3 lbs Niman Ranch Frenched Rack of Lamb
  • 1/4 c Chermoula Spice (make your own using our recipe below, or purchase at specialty grocery stores)
  • 1/4 c roasted pistachios, chopped (set aside for garnishing later)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

  2. Rub the Chermoula Spice all over the raw lamb chops – season to taste

  3. Place lamb meaty side up on a grill rack inside a roasting pan

  4. Bake to desired tenderness for 20-25 minutes, depending on the size of your lamb chops. Use a meat thermometer to gauge the internal temperature of the cooking meat. 125 degrees will be medium rare, add +5 degrees in increments to cook more “well done” (i.e. 130 degrees is medium, 135 is medium well, etc.).

  5. Remove from oven and let stand in pan for 5 minutes before carving.

  6. Cut rack into individual lamb chops by slicing in between each bone.
