This is a really quick and easy way to prepare and cook lamb which leaves you with deliciously flavoursome meat that can be done under a grill or (if the weather allows it!) on a barbecue.
The combination of olive oil, oregano, lemon and garlic sings of Greece and the quantities here can be easily scaled up.
- 4 lamb chops
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 unwaxed lemon (zest and juice)
- 2 cloves garlic (crushed)
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- Pinch each of salt and pepper
Step 1: Combine all the ingredients in a sealable bag or in a dish covered with cling film.
Step 2: Marinate for at least half an hour in the fridge.
Step 3: Remove from the fridge for 20 minutes before cooking.
Step 4: Cook under a hot grill or BBQ for a few minutes on each side (approximately three minutes a side for medium/four minutes for medium-well/five minutes for well). Rest for two minutes before serving.
This is good with herby potatoes and salad. I also like it with Greek yogurt on the side with fresh mint stirred through it.
