"This combination was a huge hit while I was chef at Michael's in Santa Monica," says Sang Yoon of his grilled lamb paired with a simple, pleasantly tangy arugula-and-Parmesan pesto. The mustard seeds in the lamb's spice coating add alluring crunch.    More Amazing Lamb Recipes  

How to Make It

Step 1    

Light a grill. In a small skillet, toast the mustard and cumin seeds over moderately high heat until fragrant, about 1 minute. Let cool, then transfer the seeds to a mortar or spice grinder and grind to a powder. Rub the spices all over the lamb and season with salt and pepper.

Step 2    

Grill the lamb over moderately high heat, turning and rotating the racks occasionally, until lightly charred outside and medium-rare within, about 30 minutes total. Transfer the lamb to a carving board and let rest for 10 minutes.

Step 3    

Meanwhile, in a food processor, puree the arugula with the garlic, lemon juice and olive oil. Add the cheese and season the pesto with salt and pepper.

Step 4    

Carve the lamb racks into individual chops and transfer to plates. Serve the arugula pesto alongside.
