Here’s a really quick and easy recipe for Spring lamb chops with mint salsa verde, just delicious at this time of the year.
Serves 4-6

For the mint salsa verde:
Makes 150ml

1 handful of parsley leaves
1 handful of mint leaves
grated zest and juice of 1 small lemon
1 clove of garlic, crushed
1 tbsp capers, rinsed
50ml extra virgin olive oil
black pepper

lamb chops (2-3 per person)
1 – 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper

First make the salsa verde, put the mint, parsley, lemon zest, garlic and capers into a food processor and whiz until it’s all finely chopped. Add the lemon juice and olive oil (add more oil if you want it a bit more runny). Check the seasoning – it might not need salt, as the capers can be quite salty.

Next cook the lamb chops, remove excess fat from the chops, but leave about ½ cm still on. Drizzle with olive oil and season with pepper. Place a frying pan or grill pan on a high heat. When it’s good and hot add the lamb chops and sprinkle with a little salt and more pepper. Cook for approximately 3 minutes on each side. Remove to a plate, cover and leave to rest in a warm oven for 5 minutes.
Serve with a good drizzling of the salsa verde.
