DIRECTIONS

  • Dry roast nuts in pan, being careful not to burn and set aside to cool.
  • In a small bowl, combine the fresh mint, parsley, feta, and nuts. Set aside.
  • Trim all fat from lamb chops. Rub the chops with about 2 teaspoons of olive oil (I use a pastry brush), salt and pepper.
  • Preheat a large fry pan over medium-high heat until very hot. Add the lamb chops to the pan. Cook over medium heat 8-10 minutes, turning chops halfway through cooking. Do not move or stir the chops until ready to flip over at the halfway mark.
  • Cook chops until well-browned and a meat thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the chop measures 145 degrees.
  • Garnish each chop with the mint/cheese mixture. Divide the salad greens on 4 plates and drizzle with a little bit of olive oil and lemon juice. Arrange the warm lamb chops on each plate.
  • Serve immediately with shiraz and crusty bread! Don't forget the mood lighting!
