Curry Lamb Chops with Mint

Mint cools off this very simple, spicy summer lamb dish.

Ingredients:

1/4 cup fresh mint leaves (I used pineapple mint from my herb garden…)

1/4 cup cilantro leaves

Extra virgin olive oil

1 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon allspice

1 teaspoon curry

1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Sea salt

4 lamb loin chops

Rough chop the mint and cilantro and place in a bowl.  Pour in 3 tablespoons of olive oil and add the paprika, allspice, curry and red pepper flakes.  Mix with a spoon and add sea salt to taste.

Lamb Marinade

Place the lamb chops in a plate and spoon the spice mixture on both sides.  Let the lamb marinate at room temperature for one hour.  Then, grill on medium high heat for about 4 minutes per side for medium rare, and let rest for a few minutes before serving.

Consider serving with a side of grilled eggplant or ratatouille.
