Easter is finally here and what better way to celebrate than with sizzling lamb chops at the heart of your holiday meal?

Let’s get cooking!


8 lamb loin chops (about 1 inch thick)

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, chopped

2 tablespoons fresh thyme, chopped

2 tablespoons olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste

1 lemon, sliced (optional, for garnish)


Preheat your grill to medium heat (about 375-400°F or 190-200°C).

In a small bowl, mix together the minced garlic, chopped rosemary, chopped thyme, olive oil, salt and pepper to make the marinade.

Place the lamb chops in a shallow dish or resealable plastic bag and pour the marinade over them. Make sure the chops are evenly coated with the marinade. Cover the dish or bag and leave to marinate in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, or up to 4 hours for maximum flavour.

Remove the lamb chops from the marinade and discard any excess marinade.

Place the lamb chops on the preheated barbecue and cook for approximately 4-5 minutes per side for medium rare, or until cooked to your liking. Cooking times will vary depending on the thickness of the chops and the heat of your barbecue.

When cooked to your liking, remove the lamb chops from the barbecue and allow to rest for a few minutes before serving.

Optional: Garnish the lamb chops with lemon slices before serving for an extra burst of flavour.

Serve the grilled Easter Lamb Chops hot as the centrepiece of your Easter feast with your favourite side dishes such as roasted vegetables, mashed potatoes or a fresh salad. Enjoy!
