Preparation: 15 mins 
Cooking: 16 mins

Serves 4

8 lamb chops

5 tablespoons olive oil

2 teaspoons chilli powder

Salt and pepper


Juice of 1 lime

1 avocado, skinned, stoned and diced

3 tomatoes, deseeded and diced

½ red onion, peeled and finely chopped

10 pitted black olives, sliced

2 tablespoons fresh coriander, chopped

  • Mix the oil, chilli and seasoning in a dish. Add the lamb chops, turn to coat well in the mixture and cover. Leave to marinate for 30 minutes in the fridge
  • For the lime juice into a small salad bowl. Add avocado, tomatoes, red onion, olives and coriander. Mix and season to taste. Cover and leave in the fridge for 30 minutes
  • Preheat grill or barbecue so it is nice and hot. Cook the chops for 6-8 minutes on each side
  • Serve immediately with the salsa

Chef's Tip:

The longer the meat is marinated, the more flavour it will have. If you can, cover and marinate the chops in the fridge for several hours or even the day before. Turn them over from time to time and take out of the fridge 30 minutes before cooking.
