Grilled Rib Lamb Chops with Garlic and Citrus
Young lamb is a great party dish and is perfect when cooked medium-rare.
INGREDIENTS | SERVES 2
2 teaspoons olive oil
½ lemon, juice and zest
1 tablespoon grapefruit juice
1–2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon dried rosemary, or 1 tablespoon fresh
Salt and pepper, to taste
8 baby rib lamb chops, about ½″ each, well trimmed
2 tablespoons white vermouth, for basting
Using a mortar and pestle, mash the olive oil, lemon juice and zest, grapefruit juice, garlic, rosemary, salt, and pepper.
Make sure all fat is removed from the lamb chops. Coat lamb chops with the garlic mixture and let rest in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
Heat grill to high. Place chops over high flame until seared on one side. Baste with vermouth and turn after 3 minutes. Baste again and reduce heat. Cover the grill and let chops roast for 8 minutes.
