Spicy Marinated Grilled Lamb Chops with mint yoghurt sauce

It's almost weekend so start heating up your BBQs for these lovely marinated lamb chops.

Servings: 2 people
  • 6-8 lamb chops
  • 2 cm ginger
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 bunch fresh mint
  • 250 ml plain yoghurt
  • olive oil
  • fleur de sel
  • pepper
  • 1 twig rosemary
  • 1 dash lime juice
  1. Start with marinating your lamb chops: Put 4-5 tbsp olive oil, grated ginger, cumin, pepper and a twig of rosmary into a container with a lid. Add the lamb chops and coat them with marinade. Cover with lid and let it chill for at least 2 hours or overnight. 

  2. Prepare your mint yoghurt. Wash and chop the fresh mint and add it to your yoghurt. Add 2 tsp of olive oil, a dash of lime juice and season to taste with salt and pepper.

  3. Prepare your BBQ for medium-high heat. Grill lamb chops to desired doneness, about 3 minutes per side for medium-rare. Let them rest for about 5 minutes, sprinkle with fleur de sel and a drizzle of olive oil before serving.
