Mix together all of the marinade ingredients and place in a shallow casserole dish along with the lamb ensuring the marinade coats the lamb well. Refrigerate for at least two hours or up till 6 hours. Remove from the refrigerator 45 minutes before you are ready to cook to allow the meat to come to room temperature.
Preheat the oven to 400°F Heat a heavy oven-proof frying pan at medium high heat. Sear the lamb very well one both sides until golden brown. Place the pan in the hot oven until the lamb is cooked to your desired doneness. We find 6 to 8 minutes will cook our 2 inch lamb chops to a nice warm rare. Serve hot.
