For 4-6 Denver cut lamb racks. Demonstrated at the 2011 Melbourne Food and Wine Festival.
Cincalok Lamb Brush:
In a bar blender, add cincalok, Thai chillis, garlic, shallots and white wine. Blend until smooth.
Add mixture to a sauce pot and cook until reduced by a quarter.
Use to brush on lamb racks while cooking.
Cincalok and Lemon Emulsion:
In a food processor add egg yolks, cincalok, roasted garlic and lemon juice and blend until smooth.
With blender on high, slowly add a stream of blended oil until all used. You are looking for the homogenised, smooth texture of mayonnaise. If you add too fast your emulsion will break/separate and you will have to start from scratch.
With blender on high, slowly add a stream of olive oil until fully incorporated.
Season with salt.
Serve in small bowls, one per guest.
