Barbecued lamb racks with honey and grapefruit

Yield: 6 servings

Measure Ingredient
3 To 4 racks baby lamb well trimmed of fat
3 tablespoons Olive oil
Juice of 2 grapefruit
2 tablespoons Manuka honey
1 teaspoon Cardamom seeds
Salt and pepper

Juicy tender racks of baby lamb are ever popular in summer months.

Marinate the lamb in a piquant mixture of Manuka honey, New Zealand grapefruit and a few cardamom seeds for a really different taste.

Cook the lamb carefully so it's rare and juicy and serve with a Chardonnay with citrusy aromas or a light red wine.

Mix the oil, grapefruit juice, honey, seasonings and cardamom seeds together. Place the lamb to marinate in this mixture for around half an hour, then cook over a low flame on the barbecue, until still pink but juicy. Carve and serve at once with salads. Serves 6.
