  4. Arrange a rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

  5. Transfer the marinated lamb, fat-side up to a roasting pan and weave the racks together so they are partially upright.

  6. Roast for 15 minutes, then turn the racks over and cook for another 10 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 130° degrees F. Let rest for 10 to 15 minutes.

Yogurt Sauce:

  1. In a medium bowl, stir together the yogurt, shallots, sumac, cilantro, salt, and pepper. Garnish the yogurt sauce with pomegranate seeds and mint leaves.

  2. Carve the lamb between the rib bones into individual chops. Transfer to a serving platter and serve with the yogurt sauce alongside.

  3. Serve and enjoy.
