These juicy BBQ Lamb Chops with Minted Mayo are so quick and easy to prepare yet taste superb. Serve with a fresh salad for a healthy and flavourful al fresco meal.
We had a fab BBQ last week, tonnes of colourful salads, ice cold ciders and these sumptuous BBQ Lamb Chops with Minted Mayo cooked over the embers. What is it about cooking outside that makes everything taste so much better?
However, I’m not at all keen on lamb fat. I don’t like the smell of it and I don’t like the taste of it. Yet when it gets a little charred around the edges by being cooking over hot embers, it takes on a whole new dimension that I actually really rather like.
And as we all know, lambs perfect bedfellow is mint, so why not serve these yummy crispy morsels with a great quivering dollop of minted mayo. Throw some ember roasted jacket potatoes into the mix with a vibrant salad and the whole family will appreciate the effort you put into this outdoor meal.
Of course, if the weather is as crappy as its been here of late, there’s nothing to stop you cooking this up indoors ;)
If you’re in need of more tasty BBQ recipes you can see my entire catalogue of them here Campfire Recipes. And in eager anticipation of my campervan being finally built, here’s my listing of recipes that’ll be ideal for cooking from a campervans gas hob or on the BBQ outside it: Campervan recipes.
Finally, I’d love to know your favourite BBQ or campervan recipes. They don’t have to be fancy, but I’d be interested to hear about your family’s go-to outdoor recipes so please feel free to leave them in the comments below :)
- 4 thin lamb chops
- Salt & pepper or your favourite seasoning
- 2 heaped tablespoons mayonnaise
- 2 heaped teaspoons finely chopped mint leaves
- Salads & baguettes/jacket potatoes to serve.
Wait for the BBQ flames to die down and for the embers to become white hot and ashy.
Season the meat and cook for 7-10 minutes, turning every 2-3 minutes until as done as you like.
Meanwhile mix the mayo & mint together and serve alongside the chops when they are cooked.
