  • 3 racks lamb frenched and cut into chops and trimmed of all but thin layer of fat
  • Coarse sea salt and freshly ground pepper or Kosher salt
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp rosemary fresh, chopped
  • 1 tbsp thyme fresh, chopped
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 lemon cut into wedges


  • Liberally sprinkle the chops with salt and pepper all over.
  • In a small bowl, combine the garlic, rosemary,  thyme, and salt.  Add the oil and whisk until combined. 
  • Pour the marinade all over the chops and turn to coat.  Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for at least 2 hours, or overnight. 
  • Heat a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat, or turn your grill on medium-high heat for direct heat grilling.
  • Sear the chops (in batches if using a hot skillet) until browned on both sides, about a total of 4 to 5 minutes for medium to medium-rare.
  • Transfer to a platter and squeeze a lemon wedge over the top.  Sprinkle with a little more sea salt, if desired.  Serve at once.
