Colorado Lamb Rack with Merguez sausage, pea puree, confit fingerling potatoes and radish

1 rack, Colorado Lamb

2 oz. Merguez sausage, cut into discs

1 quart peas

1 oz. lemon juice

1 oz. thyme

1 Tbsp. Olive Oil

2 cloves fresh garlic

1 oz. rosemary

Salt and Pepper

To make Pea Puree:

Bring a large pan of salted water to a boil and blanch peas for 3 minutes.  Add the peas to a blender along with a little water. Blitz the peas, adding more liquid in small additions as needed. Blend for no more than 2-3 minutes, until a fairly thick, smooth purée has been achieved. Tip the purée into a fine sieve and use the back of the ladle to push it through (this will give you a silky smooth finish). Taste and season with salt and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. 

To make Lamb:

Pre-heat the oven to 425 degrees.  In a hot pan, sear the lamb rack and place in preheated (non-convection) oven for 15 min. Remove from oven and rest for 3 minutes before serving.

Confit Fingerling Potatoes

2 lbs. whole fingerling or baby potatoes

1/4 cup olive oil 

3 cloves garlic, peeled and halved 

2 sprigs fresh rosemary 

2 sprigs fresh thyme 

Fleur de sel and pepper

With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 350°. In a large baking dish, combine all ingredients; season with salt and pepper. Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes, stirring frequently during cooking.
