Description

These lamb chops are made with only salt, grilled to perfection, and served with mint jelly on the side if you wish.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 12 lamb chops
  • Olive oil, for drizzling
  • Sea salt
  • Mint Jelly

Instructions

For grilling:

  1. For best flavor, make sure to salt the lamb chops 2 hours prior to grilling.
  2. Preheat the grill to 400°F.
  3. Place the individual rack of lambs on an aluminum pan and drizzle with olive oil. Cook in the grill for 4-6 minutes (depending on the thickness of the chops) with the lid down.
  4.  Take the chops out and place directly on the grill to sear for 1-2 minute on each side, until the internal temperature reaches 135°F.
  5. Allow the lamb chops to rest on a plate covered with aluminum foil for 5 minutes before serving.
  6. Serve with mint jelly

For cast iron:

  1. Salt the lamb chops 2 hours prior to cooking.
  2. Heat ¼ cup oil in a cast iron over high heat until just starting to smoke. Fry for 3-4 minutes, in batches, depending on thickness until done to your liking.
  3. Allow the lamb chops to rest on a plate covered with aluminum foil for 5 minutes before serving.
  4. Serve with mint jelly.
