Pistachio Crusted Roasted Lamb Chops
Method

  • Prepare the pistachio mixture you are going to spread onto the meat.
  • Add the olives, capers, garlic, aromatics and lemon zest and beat in a blender. Add the olive oil, very slowly, until the mixture turns into a thick paste. So thick that it sticks to your spoon without dripping.
  •  Set aside in a bowl until the meat is prepared.
  • Preheat oven to 210* C (400* F) Fan.
  • Let a pan get very hot over high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add the lamb chops and brown for 2 minutes on each side.
  • Remove from pan and place in a baking pan lined with parchment paper.
  • Spread each lamb chop or whole rack of lamb with the pistachio paste. It should be quite a thick layer.
  • Roast for 4-5 minutes in the oven, to get medium cooked lamb chops.
  • Remove from oven and allow them to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
Tip
You can ask your butcher to remove any small bones from the chest so the meal can be even more presentable. If you have a sharp knife you can also do it on your own.
