Recipe of the day – Lamb chops with Garlic & Rosemary


Lamb is one of the tastiest, tenderest and nutrient packed meats. Here we have another fantastic recipe from Filippo Berio, the olive oil experts.

Lamb Chops with Garlic and Rosemary

Serves 4
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 15-20 minutes

4 tbsp Filippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2-3 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh rosemary
1 tablespoon wholegrain or Italian-style coarse grain mustard
Grated zest and juice of 1 lime
8 lamb loin chops or thick cutlets
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 extra limes to serve


1. Blend together the oil, garlic, rosemary, mustard, lime zest and juice and season to taste.
2. Arrange the chops in a dish and coat with the marinade. Cover and leave to marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours, turning occasionally.
3. Place under a moderate grill or on the barbecue and grill for 15-20 minutes, according to taste, basting occasionally with the marinade. If liked, halve the limes and cook on the barbecue for a few minutes: they can be served with the chops and extra juice squeezed over (heating them helps release the juice).
