  • C Olive Oil
  • 2 Lemons juiced
  • 4 Sprigs Rosemary extra for garnish
  • 2 Cloves Garlic
  • 1 t Salt
  • ½ t Black Pepper
  • 12 Baby Lamb Chops


  • Add all ingredients (except lamb) in a large sealable plastic bag or a small bowl that you can cover with plastic wrap. This is your marinade.
  • Add lamb chops to the marinade.
  • Stir the lamb chops or shake the bag occasionally so all parts are coated in the marinade.
  • Let the baby lamb chops marinate for about an hour and come to room temperature.
  • Remove the lamb chops from the bag or baking dish and discard the marinade.
  • Cook on a lightly oiled grill not directly on the heat or in a cast iron skillet on the grill.
  • Grill the lamb chops 3-4 minutes on each side on medium-high heat for a rare temperature. Add 2 minutes more to achieve the desired doneness.
  • For this baby lamb chops recipe, we grill them to medium-rare. If you like to use a digital meat thermometer, it should be no lower than 120º. Be careful with the cooking time as baby lamb chops cook really quickly on the grill.
  • If you're a lemon fan, you can top the baby lamb chops with lemon zest along with fresh rosemary.
