5 pounds lamb spareribs (4 to 5 trimmed racks)

2 tablespoons kosher salt 

2 teaspoons smoked hot paprika 

1 cup orange marmalade 

2 tablespoons soy sauce 


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Place the rib racks on a baking sheet. Mix together the salt and paprika, and sprinkle the racks evenly with the mixture. Cover with foil and bake for 2 hours.
  3. Meanwhile, mix together the marmalade and soy sauce.
  4. After 2 hours, uncover the racks and brush them with the marmalade mixture. Raise the oven temperature to 400 degrees F and roast, uncovered, for an additional 30 minutes, basting the racks halfway through with the pan juices.
  5. Cut into individual ribs and serve with lots of napkins.
