Barbecued rack of lamb recipe

A lovely, simple way of cooking lamb on a spit-roast barbecue. Tonci’s tip on ageing the meat first is brilliant – it gives a richer, more flavoursome result. Afterwards, take the meat out of the fridge half an hour before cooking so it doesn’t suddenly leap from the cold of the fridge to the extreme heat of the barbie.
You will need to begin this recipe two days ahead.
Ingredients1 - lamb rack with outer layer of fat intact (be sure the butcher doesn’t remove it)
rosemary sprigs, broken into short pieces
PreparationPlace the lamb on a wire rack and refrigerate uncovered for a couple of days to age the meat.
Make shallow cuts all over the outer layer of fat and stud with rosemary sprigs, leaving some of the leaves exposed. Rub liberally with sea salt.
Spit-roast over high heat to seal. Reduce the heat and continue to cook to your liking. Slice into cutlets and serve with roasted vegetables.

Remove several layers of the bitter exterior leaves and trim remaining leaves before submerging and cooking artichokes in salted water for around 15 minutes (use a dinner plate on top of the artichokes to keep them under water). A thin skewer should meet little resistance when they are cooked.
Habanero (fresh) is a super super hot variety of chilli.
