Herb Roasted Lamb Rack

I've never made lamb before this, but I saw an advertisement for a contest making lamb. So I thought, why the heck not!! So I bought this rack of lamb and spent a while concocting a marinade for it, baked it, and took these images before I checked the contest rules and saw I wasn't supposed to create an original recipe, but make one they gave to me.....OH well. Call me an over achiever. And now I get to share it with you all anyways!

The taste of lamb is VERY unique and I enjoyed it! Although I think I may prefer the taste of other meats instead. It was so fun to experiment with this though and I loved the marinade!
