Ingredients

  • 2 lemons
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon capers, rinsed and chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 8 (1 1/4- to 1 1/2-inch-thick) lamb rib or loin chops
  • Demerara sugar, for dipping
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

Zest lemons to get 2 teaspoons zest. Cut lemons in half, lengthwise, and set aside.

Combine lemon zest, oil, garlic, capers, parsley, mint and thyme in a small bowl. Spread mixture evenly over lamb chops; let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Preheat a grill to medium-high heat.

Dip each lemon half, cut side down, in sugar. Place lemons on the grill, cut side down, and cook until caramelized, about 5 minutes. Season chops with salt and pepper. Grill chops until browned outside and medium-rare within, 5 to 6 minutes per side for rib chops or 6 to 8 minutes per side for loin chops. Serve two chops per person, topped with squeezed grilled lemon.
