    How to cook lamb chops: Grilled, oven baked or fried

    Lamb chops should be cooked over a high heat, quickly, and can also be quick-roasted (although this depends on how thick they are)

    Lamb chop recipes are highly versatile, as BBQing, grilling and pan-frying are all methods that suit lamb chops. These cooking methods equally get lots of colour on the meat and any exposed fat sizzling until brown, so you can tailor the recipes to your own cooking preference.

    If you’re a spice fiend and like exploring different flavours, then we highly recommend marinating your lamb chops before cooking. Lamb chops can be beautifully complimented by flavours from all over the world, including mediterranean flavours such as olives, lemon, basil, anchovies and garlic.

    If you’d like to keep things traditional, then season your lamb chops with the flavours of home with ingredients such as capers, rosemary and thyme.

    For those of you looking to try more adventurous flavours, opt for spices such as cinnamon, saffron, cumin, turmeric, coriander, ginger, garam marsala and lime.
