Stir together garlic, herbs, salt, pepper, and oil. Coat meaty parts of lamb with herb mixture, pressing to help it stick. Bake the lamb rack for 15 minutes, then cover the lamb loosely with tin foil and roast until the lamb meets and internal temp of 52°C.

Then let it stand, covered, for about 10 minutes before carving. (Internal temperature will rise to 54-55°C for medium-rare while lamb stands.)
