Curry-Spiced Lemon Marinated Lamb Chop Recipe

Here is a recipe we often use to prepare our lamb chops, which are on sale right now. It’s become one of our favorites; the marinade really compliments the characteristics of lamb meat. Recently we served it to a group of friends as part of the evening meal. Everyone enjoyed it…even those eating lamb for the 1st time!

Curry-Spiced Lemon Marinated Lamb Chops
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup olive oil
2 Tbsp. grated onion
1 Tbsp. chile powder
1 Tbsp. salt
2 tsp. granulated garlic
1 tsp. curry powder
1 tsp. ground coriander
1 tsp. ground ginger

To make the marinade, combine the marinade ingredients (which will make enough for 6-8 chops) and marinade the chops at least 2-3 hours or overnight. We like to do ours on the grill. Grill over medium heat until desired degree of doneness. Or try baking them at 300* on a rack (such as a cookie cooling rack) placed over a cookie sheet pan. This allows the fat to drip off. If you like to pan-fry be sure to remove as much excess fat as possible as the fat gives an unwanted flavor.
