Mustard Crusted Rack of Lamb

1 rack lamb - (abt 1 1/2 lbs) -- trimmed
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan
Fig Chutney -- (see recipe)


Season rack of lamb well on all sides with salt and pepper. Heat a medium skillet over high heat and, when hot, add the oil. When the oil is almost smoking, add the rack of lamb and brown well on all sides, about 6 minutes. Transfer the lamb to a plate and set aside to cool slightly before proceeding.


Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.


Using the back of a spoon, spread the mustard evenly over all sides of the lamb. Spread the minced garlic over the lamb in the same manner.


In a small mixing bowl combine the breadcrumbs and grated cheese and toss to thoroughly combine. Using your hands or a spoon, spread the breadcrumb mixture evenly all over the lamb, pressing so that the crumbs adhere to the meat.


Place the rack of lamb on a baking sheet and bake for 12 to 15 minutes for medium-rare. Allow lamb to sit for 5 to 10 minutes before carving into chops to serve.


Serve with some of the Fig Chutney, if desired.


This recipe yields 1 rack of lamb; 2 servings.
