  1. Whizz all the above ingredients together except the lamb chops or mash them up using a mortar and pestel until its nice paste.
  2. In a large plastic bag or bowl, mix the lamb chops with the marinade and either seal or cover. Then place in the fridge for at least 4 hours up to 24 hours.
  3. Tip: Before you cook the lamb, remove it from the fridge and leave it to site for half an hour before cooking.
  4. Get a frying pan or griddle pan and get this really really hot, the hotter the better.
  5. Place lamb chops on the griddle pan and fry these for about 4-5 minutes each side or till they are to your required doneness (I like it a little pink in the middle, but not underdone.).
  6. Serve with potatoes of your choice and seasonal vegetables, I used roasted parsnip, roasted potatoes and some Kurly Kale.

This was great thank you. I used big shoulder chops (they aren't so pretty, but have great flavour!) and the lime option. I managed to marinate them 8 hours, but think overnight would be even better.
