Author Notes: This recipe was given to me from a very old and very dear friend. It is quite simple, succinct and perfectly delicious.
In regards to the lamb - If you're willing to spend the extra money, the American really are quite superior - better meat/better fat.

Serves 4

  • 12-16 cloves of garlic
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1/3 cup FRESH lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons pepper
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 16 lamb chops
  1. In the food processor, drop garlic, add cumin, cardamom, lime juice, salt, pepper and oil. Pour into a large bag or container to marinate (a couple of hours or up to 2 days).
  2. On the grill is a must, and with a medium flame they'll be done in about 2 minutes per side. Perhaps a bit more but rarer is better.
