Pistachio-Crusted Moroccan Rack of Lamb With Israeli Couscous

60 mins (prep 40, cooking 20)
20 ingredients
2-3 servings
We were wondering what to do with our rack of lamb. Since we had some Ras el hanout, preserved lemon, pomegranate molasses, and pomegranate seeds, we prepared this with excellent results. I have never been to Morocco. But from what I have seen of recipes by Paula Wolfert, the preparation of Moroccan cuisine seems much more complicated than this. Your own Ras el hanout will be better than anything you find already prepared. And if you can find spices at an ethnic market, it will cost less, too. (Food.com has many very good Ras el hanout blends, including my own :-)) As for preserved lemon, guess where you can find a recipe? You guessed it--right here on Food.com. But I will also provide one at the end of this recipe
