Prep Time 20 minutes

Cook Time 10 minutes


8 lamb chops 
1 tablespoon ground cumin 
2 teaspoons ground coriander 
½ teaspoon ground cardamom (optional)  
1 tablespoon olive oil 

For the green chilli salsa 

1 small onion, finely chopped
2 green chillies, finely chopped 
Small handful parsley leaves, finely chopped 
Large handful mint leaves, finely chopped  
1 clove garlic, crushed or grated 
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons olive oil

The spice in this simple lamb chop recipe can be dialed up or down depending on personal preference. We like the salsa nice and spicy too, but just adjust the amount of chilli according to your taste.
