I don’t know about you- but I’m really ready for spring. (Well, I’m really ready for summer, but I’ll take spring.) In celebration of all things warm, I created this recipe that requires you to dust off your grills. This marinade is great for meat or vegetables like squash. I love marinades because they help you create a delicious dinner for the next day with very little effort. Try making this for a little taste of warmer weather to come.
I marinated the chops for at least two hours before grilling them. I saved the marinade for pork chops. Because the marinade doesn’t have a strong flavor, it’s better suited for lighter flavored meats like lamb, chicken or pork.
Lamb Chops With Lime and Mint Glaze
4 to 6 rib lamb chops
For the marinade:
1 cup olive oil
4 limes, zested and juiced (equal to about 1/3 cup juice)
1/4 cup agave or honey
3 garlic cloves
1/3 cup mint roughly chopped
1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
Whisk the marinade ingredients together and pour into a sturdy zip loc bag, reserving 1 cup of the marinade. Gently poke holes in the lamb with a fork and place in the bag for at least 2 hours and up to 24 hours.
Remove the lamb and grill until done. While the lamb in on the grill, bring the reserved marinade up to a boil. Once the lamb is done, glaze the lamb with the hot marinade.
