RACK OF LAMB

2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
1 tablespoon fresh Rosemary leaves
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and freshly ground pepper
3-pound rack of lamb with 14 to 18 bones, carved into individual slices

 

MASHED POTATOES

2 large peeled potatoes
1 large peeled turnip
1 large onion, chopped into small cubes
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and freshly ground pepper

 

In a large bowl, combine 1 tablespoon of thyme leaves, Rosemary leaves, garlic, ginger, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, salt and pepper. Mix well. Add the lamb to the mixture until evenly coated. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight.

Meanwhile, cook the potatoes and the turnip in salt water until sufficiently soft (the turnip will cook in a shorter period). Chill both for a few minutes.
Put 1 ½ tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet and sauté the onion until browned.

Mash the potatoes with potato ricer and cut the turnip into small cubes. 

In a large bowl, combine the potatoes, turnip, onion and mix gently. Season with salt and pepper and put aside in a warm place.

In a skillet, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil and add the lamb to the mixture. Sauté for 1 ½ minutes on each side for medium rare and 2 minutes on each side for medium. (You can sauté in two separate batches).

Spread potatoes in a long-serving dish. Arrange the lamb over potato and sprinkle with the remaining 1 tablespoon of thyme leaves.

Serve immediately.
