    ellie_'s Note:

    I love lamb riblets and this is a great way to cook them on the grill--I think it will work for lamb chops too just changing the cooking times. The original recipe called for lemons, but when I made this I was out of lemons so used lime for rubbing on the lamb itself. Recipe source: Bon Appetit (August 1990)

      These are very good. The sauce fills the kitchen with a wonderful aroma at each step as it is being prepared. This has a nice combination of flavors and will be made again. Thanks. UPDATE: I forgot to mention that I used lamb chops and they worked really well.
