Grilled Baby Lamb Chops w/ Lemon

This one is pretty simple and quick. Don’t need to go getting crazy to make lamb taste good, its just sooo good on it’s own. You can serve this an entree or an appetizer. I bought these @ Stop & Shop (local grocery store) because it’s less than a mile away and I didn’t feel like dealing with Costco. I LOVE Costco and you can’t beat their pricing for lamb chops, but you need to mentally be prepared to go there, and I wasn’t. I can’t go there for one thing, I try all the time, but it never works….never. Even if you bet me, I couldn’t do it. I need the things I buy there…need them all.

Happy Birthday Julie – these were for you 🙂

Grilled Baby Lamb Chops w/ Lemon



  • 3 lemons, halved
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 16 baby lamb chops (2.5 to 3 pounds)
  • Kosher salt



On a rimmed container or even a ziplock bag, combine olive oil,  juice of 2 lemons with lamb chops. Sprinkle with salt.

DSC_0073Mix all around with your hands, make sure to evenly coat each lamb chop. Don’t be shy with the salt 🙂 Slice the last lemon and place on top of lamb.


Cover and let marinate at room temperature, turning occasionally, about 1 hour.

Preheat a grill – charcoal, propane or even a grill pan/skillet on the stove. I am using propane. I am in desperate need of a new grill and its more of a “searing” grill because it cooks @ massively high temps – it often flares up and I am too lazy to buy some new parts…I love it, it crisps these up nice.

Look at those flames…wtf am I thinking….but those grill marks….F yes.

Grill the chops and lemons until browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Serve the chops topped with the lemons.
