Lamb Chops:

  • 8 lamb chops

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided

  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

Mint Oil:

  • ¼ cup mint leaves

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest


  1. Make the lamb chops: Brush chops with 1 tablespoon olive oil; season with rosemary, salt, and pepper. Marinate in the refrigerator, 15 minutes to 2 hours.

  2. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet. Add chops and cook until browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

  3. While the chops are cooking, make the mint oil: Combine mint leaves, extra-virgin olive oil, lemon juice, and lemon zest in a blender; blend until smooth.

  4. Drizzle mint oil over chops.


If marinating lamb chops for 2 hours, remove them from the refrigerator 10 minutes before you want to cook them.
