This is hands down my favorite weeknight dinner...I adore lamb chops and my kids love these ....the marinade I use gets rid of any gaminess that lamb can tend to have and leaves you with this lick your fingers (and the bone for my fellow carnivores) yumminess!!! I love the simplicity of the ingredients, ease and again quickness of this healthful no carb meal....I promise you will be making this at least once a week. The arugula can be used as a base for any meat, steak, chicken cutlets or even salmon!
So pay attention because if you blink it will be over and done that is how easy it is!!
Lamb chops for 4
8 lamb chops, trimmed of excess fat
2 cloves garlic chopped
3 springs rosemary, leaves removed and chopped
1 tsp cayenne pepper (less if you do not like spicy)
1 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup olive oil
Place all ingredients in a ziploc bag and marinate for at least an hour but upto 24 hours if you want to do it in advance. Prepare grill medium high heat, cook for 4 minutes each side for medium rare...presto lamb chops extraordinaire!!
Arugula in Lemon Vinaigrette
2 bags arugula (I love it when they call it rocket!)
1 lemon, juiced
1/4 cup good extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Parmigiano Reggiano (I use a vegetable peeler to peel the block of cheese or use a grater, the amount here is up to you!)
Place lemon juice in a bowl add salt and pepper to taste and then whisk in the olive oil to create a thickened sauce, pour over arugula, top with Parm and then lamb chops....
WOW, now you cannot say this isn’t insanely easy and so fancy looking!!!
