  1. Brush lamb 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. Cook lamb chops 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. Combine mint leaves, 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, lemon juice, and lemon zest in a blender; blend until smooth. Drizzle over lamb chops.


  • Cook's Note:
  • If marinating lamb chops for 2 hours, remove them from the refrigerator 10 minutes before you want to cook them.

Delicious! I doubled the recipe for a large group, and it was fantastic! Served the lamb in small plate fashion for a presentation. I will certainly be making this again!
