    Marinated Lamb Chops with Couscous Tabbouleh and Mint Mojo


    Serves 4

    Lamb Chops

    1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
    1/2 lemon, zested and juiced
    1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
    1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    1 clove garlic, roughly chopped
    8 to 10 lamb chops
    Light olive oil, for cooking

    Couscous Tabbouleh

    2 cups low-sodium vegetable stock
    1 (10-ounce) box couscous
    1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
    1 lime, zested and juiced
    1 teaspoon ground cumin
    1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
    1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    3 plum tomatoes, seeded and finely diced
    3 cloves garlic, finely minced
    1 small red onion, finely diced
    1/2 European cucumber, seeded and finely diced
    1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
    1/4 cup canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed

    Mint Mojo

    1 1/2 cups mint jelly
    1 cup extra virgin olive oil
    3 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
    1 bunch mint leaves (about 1 packed cup)
    1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
    1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

    For lamb chops:

    1. Whisk together oil, lemon zest and juice, oregano, cumin, and pepper in a shallow dish. Add garlic. Add lamb chops and turn to coat.
    2. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight, turning occasionally.
    3. Remove chops from refrigerator and shake off excess marinade. Set aside.
    4. Heat a large grill pan or skillet over high heat. Brush pan lightly with oil. Add chops and cook 2 1/2 minutes per side for medium-rare.

    For couscous tabbouleh:

    1. Bring vegetable stock to a boil in a small saucepan over high heat. Meanwhile, place couscous in a medium heatproof bowl. Drizzle with olive oil. When stock boils, carefully pour over couscous; cover tightly with plastic wrap and set aside 5 minutes.
    2. Uncover and fluff couscous with a fork. Stir in lime zest and juice, cumin, salt, and pepper. Add tomatoes, garlic, onion, cucumber, cilantro, and chickpeas. Stir to combine.

    For mint mojo:

    • Combine all ingredients in a food processor. Pulse until well combined.

    To serve:

    • Spoon a portion of couscous into the center of a plate; place 2 lamb chops onto the couscous. Drizzle mint mojo around the plate and garnish with a sprig of mint, if desired.

    At some point you have to realise that
    some people can stay in your heart
    but not in your life.......

    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    Love lamb. But I far prefer Israeli couscous to the smaller, grainy stuff.

    I love lamb, but going to all that bother for a meal for one doesn't seem worth it. Donna doesn't do lamb.
