Spicy Lamb Chops

Juicy lamb chops with the punch of spice

A spice party in your mouth, that’s what these lamb chops are. Incredibly easy and wonderfully tasty – need I say more?

My only extra advice is to use good meat – it will make all the difference!



Serves 3-4

1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp crushed chillies
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp fresh or ground ginger
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/4 tsp fennelseed
1/4 tsp majoram
Optional:1 tsp ground dried mint
1 tbsp olive oil
12 lamb chops


  1. Mix all the spices in a zip-lock bag. Add the lamb chops and coat in the spice mix on all sides.
  2. Marinate overnight.
  3. Allow chops to come to room temperature (about half an hour).
  4. Fry about 3 minutes on each side. Keep warm and allow to sit just briefly.

    That lamb is so well seasoned and it cooks in a record 6 minutes. These are the kind of meals I’m looking for. Great combination of spices!
