Lamb Chops with Mint Gremolata

With Easter coming up, I had to share this recipe. For most of my life, we’ve had lamb for the holiday, and I think this is an excellent way to prepare it! Not to mention, it’s super easy, for those who may be intimidated by cooking it. Only 5 ingredients in this recipe!!

It’s juicy and delicious and the gremolata gives it a nice fresh flavor. Serve on a bed of mashed potatoes and you’ve got a feast fit for any holiday!

Lamb Chops with Mint Gremolata
slightly adapted from Country Living

for the lamb:
one rack baby lamb chops
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
4 sprigs torn mint
3 cloves garlic
freshly ground pepper

for the gremolata:
1 clove garlic
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
salt
1/2 cup loosely packed mint leaves
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil

Place lamb, olive oil, torn mint, garlic, and pepper in a plastic bag. Toss to coat lamb chops and marinate in refrigerator for 2 hours.

Remove lamb, wipe off excess marinade, and season with salt and freshly ground pepper. Broil chops on high until medium-rare, about 3 minutes per side. Remove and let rest for 5 minutes.

To make the gremolata: crush garlic, lemon zest, and salt into a paste using the side of a large knife or a mortar and pestle. In a small bowl, stir together garlic paste and mint leaves with olive oil.

Transfer chops to serving plate, drizzle with mint gremolata, and garnish with fresh mint.
