Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4.


Rub the 2 French-trimmed, 7-bone racks of lamb with olive oil and season well.


Place a large cast-iron pan over a very high heat and sear the lamb, fat side down, for 2-3 minutes. Turn over, searing all sides.


In a medium-sized bowl, combine the 4 finely grated garlic cloves, finely chopped, shelled pistachios, finely chopped parsley, lemon zest and breadcrumbs.


Generously brush each lamb rack with harissa paste, then cover with the pistachio crumb, patting it all over the top and sides.


Roast in the oven for 25 minutes or until the crumb is golden and crisp.


Remove from the oven and rest for 10 minutes before serving.
