BBQ Lamb Chops

BBQ Lamb Chops

Lamb is a favourite on the BBQ because, cooked correctly, if remains beautifully tender and juicy thanks to the fat content and tastes amazing with a good marinade.  Here is one of our favourite lamb marinades to try out this summer.

What You'll Need

  • 4 lamb chops about 3/4 inch thick
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 60ml freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons of minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon of dried rosemary or 1 tablespoon of fresh rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon of thyme
  • 1 teaspoon of salt

What to do

  1. Mix all of the ingredients except the lamb in a bowl
  2. Lay out the lamb chops in a flat dish and pour the marinade over the meat, ensuring that both sides of the chops are covered
  3. Cover with cling film and allow to marinade for at least 2 hours before cooking
  4. About 20 mins before cooking, bring the chops out of the fridge allow them to come up to room temperature
  5. Place chops on a hot BBQ for about 3 - 4 minutes on each side depending on how well done you like them
  6. Set aside to rest for a couple of minutes before serving

These are delicious on their own or served with a creamy mint sauce on the side.  To make the mint sauce, blend together 250g low fat natural yoghurt with a handful of fresh mint leaves, 2 tablespoons of sugar and the juice of half a lemon.  When the mint leaves are well chopped, pour in to a ramekin to serve.
