Scale

Ingredients

  • 8 lamb loin chops
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbl Ras el Hanout
  • salt

For the Charmoula

  • 2 Tbl fresh mint, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, roughly chopped
  • 2 Tbl lemon zest
  • 3 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika (use regular if you don’t have smoked)
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 Tbl lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Rub the lamb with olive oil and generously coat with ras el hanout and salt. (If not using the ras el hanout, season generously with salt, pepper, and a little cumin.) Preheat your grill, then grill about 2 minutes per side for medium rare. Let the meat rest a few minutes before serving.

For the Charmoula

  1. Combine all of the Charmoula ingredients in a food processor or magic bullet and pulse until a pesto-like consistency. Don’t overblend – it shouldn’t be completely liquified.
  2. Serve the lamb chops with a generous helping of Charmoula and some fresh lemon zest. Perfect with grilled asparagus and cauliflower puree on the side.
