Moroccan-spiced Rack of Lamb

Holidays call for a little splurging. And when it comes to Easter, lamb is an obvious, splurge-worthy choice. I usually end up going with the leg, but after years of holiday leg of lamb recipes, I decided I owed myself a treat and picked up a rack of lamb instead. The question was, what flavors could I use to make it as delicious as possible?
