Lamb chops with red pepper & mint salsa
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 6
This summery salsa can be made a couple of days ahead and kept in the fridge. Grill the chops in the oven or on the bbq
For the salsa
- STEP 1
Season the chops all over with salt and pepper. Make a slit between the bone and meat in each chop, then push a sliver of garlic and small sprig of rosemary into each.
- STEP 2
For the salsa, put the peppers in a mini chopper or food processor with the garlic, chilli, mint and lemon. Blitz until finely chopped, but not puréed. Add the oil and blitz briefly to mix. Tip into a bowl and leave at room temperature until serving time.
- STEP 3
Grill or barbecue the chops for 5-7 mins each side until brown, then serve on a platter with the salsa (stir before serving).
