1.5 (700 grams) pound lamb chops – halal certified

6-8 fresh mint leaves (finely chopped)

¼ cup finely chopped parsley

2 teaspoons paprika

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon red chili pepper

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons water



Marinating the Lamb Chops

  1. Place the lamb chops in a large bowl.
  2. Add the chopped mint leaves, parsley, crushed garlic cloves, olive oil, and spices to the bowl. Mix well.
  3. Add a little bit of water to dilute the mixture. Mix well.
  4. Cover the bowl with a plastic wrap and place it in the fridge for at least 1 hour. You can marinate the lamb chops overnight if you want.


Grilling the Lamb Chops

  1. You can grill the lamb chops in your barbecue grill or a grilling plate that you place on top of a stove. Note: If you are using a grill plate, cover it with a little bit of olive oil.
  2. Grill the lamb chops on both sides for a few minutes each side. Note: grill the lamb for a shorter time if you like meat rare or medium-rare, and longer for well done. But be careful not to overcook or the meat will be too dry.
  3. Serve the lamb chops with rice and vegetables.
