Lamb Asparagus RotiniMing Tsai's green peppercorn–crusted lamb with asparagus and rotini

Whether you're still looking for your Easter-table centerpiece or just want to celebrate spring, here are three test-driven lamb dishes that our recipe tester loved. Citrus and Rose–Crusted Lamb Loin We love the sweet and floral crust on this dish from Daniel Fox of the Madison Club. If you plan to use the optional rose water, be sure to do so sparingly—a little goes a long way. Green Peppercorn Lamb with Asparagus and Rotini Ming Tsai’s simple one-wok wonder is the perfect signs-of-spring meal. Braised Lamb Shank Cabernet–Chipotle Jus Cabernet may sound like an overly aggressive accent for mild lamb, but we're keeping this robust recipe from Amangani's Rick Sordahl on hand for these final days of chilly April showers.
