  1. Marinate: Lamb Chops In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients except lamb chops and mix well with a fork. Wipe dry, cut and lay flat all the chops on a platter/tray. Generously brush the marinade on all over the lamb chops coating all sides. Cover and keep aside for 15 minutes.

Pan Fried Chops
  1. Heat a wide skillet over medium-high heat (takes around 3-4 minutes).  Use a grill pan if you want the grill marks.  Place the chops in the pan.  Cook 3 minutes each side for well done chops. Reduce to 2 minutes each side for medium rare done chops.

Outdoor Grill
  1. Heat up grill.   Grill chops for 3 minutes on each side (on a medium-high heat zone).  Reduce to 2 minutes each side for medium rare done chops. 

Oven Broil
  1. Switch on broiler for a few minutes.  Place chops on a lined baking sheet and pop it under the broiler, such that the meat is about 4 inches away from the heat.  3 minutes on each side for well done and 2 minutes for medium rare.

  2. Serve: Transfer the chops to a platter and rest for 5 minutes.  Serve with lemon-saffron rice or warm pita bread and a greek salad.

  1. Ask your butcher to cut the rack of lamb into individual chops, or, using the bone as a guide- cut into 8 chops of around 3/4" thickness). The chili flakes and cayenne can be reduced or omitted to suit your spice preference.
