Ingredients
  • 8 ½ inch lamb loin chops (about 2 pounds) fatty tips trimmed
  • 1 cup Greek style yogurt
  • ¼ teaspoon fresh lemon zest
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons prepared horseradish (you can add extra if you like it spicier)
  • 2 Tablespoons minced chives
Method
Season the lamb with salt and pepper and rub with olive oil. Lay out on a heat-proof baking sheet. Let the lamb chops come to room temperature. Make the sauce by adding the yogurt, pinch of sea salt, 2 tablespoons prepared horseradish, ¼ teaspoon lemon zest and 2 tablespoons minced chives. Season with salt and pepper. Broil the lamb chops for about 3 minutes on each side. (Or you can also heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil and saute for 3 minutes each side in a pan on the stove). Serve with the horseradish yogurt sauce and enjoy. Serves 4
