1. Shopping List and Info

The saddle of lamb is a high-quality piece of meat for short roasting and is also available deep-frozen.

Saddle of lamb is synonymous with rack of lamb. It is the loosened back piece of lamb with rib bone.

Lamb salmon are again back pieces without bone, it concerns the same meat piece. The fillet is again under the back and is usually sold separately.

The traditional preparation of the saddle of lamb is a crown of lamb. The saddle of lamb is tied together in a circle and the bones form a crown.
