Rack of lamb is already delicious and impressive, but this hazelnut and thyme crust takes it to another level! I love the nutty flavour the hazelnuts impart, and the fragrance of the thyme. You could also try sage instead of or in addition to thyme. Enjoy!
Start out with your lamb at or near room temperature, never straight out of the fridge. Allowing the lamb to come to room temperature ensures that it cooks more evenly throughout.
