Preparation Instructions

Light your BBQ and give it 30 mins to get nice and hot – we want those chops crispy!

            1. If weather isn’t on your side then you can still rustle up this dish in an oven,  just crank it up to 200°C / gas mark 6.
            2. On a chopping board chop up the thyme.
            3. Put all the marinade ingredients together (minus the olive oil) and blend in a pestle and mortar. If you don’t have a pestle and mortar try using an empty salt / pepper grinder.
            4. Sprinkle all your spices on the chopping board and rub each lamb chop so it’s well seasoned.
            5. Once coated, drizzle each in a splash of olive oil – then pop on the BBQ!
            6. Turn every couple of minutes for 8-10 minutes in total until they look crisp & delicious!

TIP: If you press the chop & the meat gives, it’s medium-rare. If it doesn’t move then it’s well done.

This dish is best served with some grilled veg, salad and cous cous – super easy prep!
