For the Lamb

  • 2 racks of Australian lamb (about 1 ½ pounds each), frenched
  • Pink salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

For the Glaze

  • 1 jar fig jam
  • 4 Tbsp water


  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Season the racks of lamb with salt and pepper on all sides. Place the racks of lamb, fat side up, on a sheet pan. After Roast the racks of lamb in the preheated oven for about 10 minutes, flip it over and bake for another 10 minutes, then flip it again for 5 minutes for medium-rare, or until the internal temperature reaches around 130 degrees. Adjust the cooking time based on your desired level of doneness.
  • Once cooked to your liking, remove the racks of lamb from the oven and let them rest for about 5-10 minutes. This resting period allows the juices to redistribute and ensures a tender and juicy result. Slice the racks of lamb into individual chops. Place the jam and water in a small saucepan bring to a boil and turn off the heat. Dip each chop in the jam mixture and place on top of mashed potatoes, gratin of potatoes, black rice with veggies, or just a side of your favorite salad.
