Step 1

Set the EGG for indirect cooking with a convEGGtor at 450°F/232°C.

Step 2

Combine the olive oil with the mustard, 1 tablespoon (15 ml) of the parsley, thyme, rosemary and garlic, making a paste. Spread evenly all over the lamb, then season with salt and pepper.

Step 3

Mix together the bread crumbs and the remaining 1 tablespoon (15 ml) chopped parsley until evenly distributed. Press the bread crumbs onto the rack of lack, making sure to cover evenly top and bottom and on the ends.

Add sliced radishes and tarragon. Season with salt and pepper to serve.
