  • 2 pounds lamb loin chops
  • 2 lemons cut in half

Honey Lemon Mint Marinade

  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh mint finely minced
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh oregano finely minced
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh rosemary finely minced
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh thyme finely minced
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons salt


  • Marinate. Combine all ingredients for the garlic herb marinade in a zip-top bag and mix to combine. Place your lamb chops in the marinade and massage to coat. Place in your refrigerator and allow to marinate for at least 4 hours or up to 8 hours.
  • Preheat. Preheat your grill to 450 degrees F.
  • Grill the lamb chops. Remove the lamb chops from the marinade and shake gently to remove any excess marinade. Place the lamb chops and the lemon halves directly on the grill grates. Lamb cooks quickly so keep a thermometer handy and check the temperature often. Cook the lamb, flipping every 3-4 minutes until the internal temperature reads 130 degrees F. Medium rare is the optimal internal temperature for lamb chops.
  • Enjoy! Remove the lamb chops and the grilled lemon halves to your serving platter. Allow your guests to squeeze the grilled lemon over their lamb chops, to taste, just before enjoying!
